Wyndham City is undertaking a project to explore and understand the issue of Affordable Housing need in our community and to consider how we might facilitate the delivery of new Affordable Housing opportunities as part of our vision to support a sustainable and diverse community.

What is “affordable housing”?

The Victorian Government defines affordable housing as:

"Housing that is appropriate for the housing needs of very low, low and moderate-income households."

Affordable Housing refers to housing that is available for rent or purchase to lower to moderate income households at price (whether mortgage repayments or rent) that ensures the household can also meet other essential basic living costs.

There are many types of Affordable Housing ranging from specialised supported accommodation to long-term community or public housing, other forms of private affordable rental housing and specific affordable home ownership programs.
