NRSCH Review - Discussion Paper

The Commonwealth and New South Wales (NSW) Governments have jointly announced a comprehensive review of the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (the Review).

Commonwealth Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, NSW Minister for Social Housing, Pru Goward, and Commonwealth Assistant Minister for Social Services, Housing and Disability Services, Sarah Henderson, have jointly announced the Review.

The Commonwealth and the NSW Government will lead the Review, which is designed to drive greater investment in community housing supply and better outcomes for tenants.

The Review will:

  • ensure the regulatory framework will continue to support the growth of the community housing sector into the future;
  • secure a national system; and
  • improve data and governance arrangements.

The Working Group has released a discussion paper to support the first stage of the Review and encourage public submissions in response to the issues raised in the paper.
