Victorian Housing Register

The Victorian Housing Register

The new online Victorian Housing Register will make applying for social housing assistance easier. Bringing together all public and community housing waiting lists into a single place, it means Victorians in need of housing only have to provide their details once, instead of contacting individual agencies.

Through a single online application, the Victoria Housing Register will provide a fair and easy way for people to access a range of social housing options.

With waiting times in the priority access category - that is, those most in need of housing - blowing out by over 50% in 4 years under the previous government, we all need to do our bit to provide more housing for those most in need. 

This is why participating organisations will need to allocate at least 75% of their social housing vacancies to priority applicants on the register, noting this will be a condition of eligibility for participation in the new social housing funding initiatives outlined in Homes for Victorians.
