Financial viability requirements

Community housing providers must be financially viable at all times to register and remain registered under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing.

Financial viability is the ability to generate sufficient income to meet operating payments, debt commitments and, where applicable, to allow for growth, while maintaining service.

Performance and assessment data will be used to inform a risk-based assessment of all registered providers to determine compliance with the National Law and National Regulatory Code.

As part of their Registration Application, the provider will prepare a Financial Performance Report using a comprehensive suite of financial measures that analyse organisational performance.
