The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is responsible for the NSW Government’s social housing portfolio.
What we do
LAHC is a Public Trading Enterprise (PTE) established in 2001 under the Housing Act 2001 and operates under the Minister Water, Property and Housing. LAHC and Department Communities & Justice work together to achieve a unified administration of the Act.
LAHC supports the priorities of the Government's social housing policy Future Directions for Social Housing in NSW. Future Directions is underpinned by three strategic priorities:
- More social housing
- More opportunities, support and incentives to avoid and/or leave social housing
- A better social housing experience.
Future Directions sets out the Government’s vision to transform the social housing system over ten years. LAHC plays a critical role in increasing the supply of social and affordable housing through the $22 billion Communities Plus building program.
Millers Point- Proceeds from the sale of Government owned properties in Millers Point, Dawes Point and The Rocks have returned hundreds of millions of dollars back into the social housing system. Sale proceeds are financing the construction of new fit-for-purpose social housing across the Sydney metropolitan area and regional NSW.
Communities Plus - Under the Future Directions strategy, LAHC is delivering the Communities Plus program. The program is delivering up to 23,000 social housing dwellings, 500 affordable housing dwellings and 40,000 private dwellings.
LAHC delivers maintenance services to public housing residents through local contractors. Social obligations are achieved through the delivery of maintenance services. To date, over 150 social housing tenants have been employed and 640 apprenticeships and traineeships provided.
