The project was commissioned by Community Housing Industry Association NSW (CHIA NSW) and Homelessness NSW, and aimed to estimate the costs of delivering new supply of social and affordable housing based on needs estimates developed in AHURI research for social housing, and extended in this project to estimate needs for affordable housing.
According to the research, Australia will need an additional 1 million new social and affordable dwellings to meet unmet demand over the next 20 years.
Queensland alone will need approximately 175,000 new social housing dwellings, and 80,000 new affordable housing dwellings by 2036.
