About this program

The affordable and diverse housing fund promotes the development of affordable and diverse rental housing in our area by community housing providers, not-for-profit and for-profit organisations.

The fund is part of our commitment to overcome financial barriers to affordable and diverse housing development. It aligns with the housing for a diverse population strategic direction in Sustainable Sydney 2030 and our housing issues paper.

Funding available

The fund’s priority is to leverage private finance for affordable rental housing. It's expected that the total amount of funding for any individual project will not exceed $3 million. Funding cannot be used for consent authority fees and charges.

Funds can be used for:

  • acquiring land
  • design and construction
  • associated development costs.
