The Queensland Government seeks to improve Queenslanders' access to safe, secure, appropriate and affordable housing. Housing Services achieves this objective in a range of ways, from delivering traditional housing assistance to influencing the development of an effective and responsive housing system.
The National Affordable Housing Agreement
The National Affordable Housing Agreement commenced on 1 January 2009 and provides a framework for governments to work together to improve housing affordability, reduce homelessness, and reduce Indigenous housing disadvantage.
The National Affordable Housing Agreement replaces the Commonwealth State Housing Agreement and the Queensland Indigenous Housing and Infrastructure Agreement 2005-2008.
Strategic Policy Statements
The Disability Service Plan 2010-2014 outlines how Housing Services will continue to improve its service delivery to clients with a disability, the actions we will take and how we will measure our success. The plan also describes how we will support members of our workforce who have a disability and reduce barriers to employment in the department for people with a disability.
Young People's Housing Statement - This Statement, developed by Housing Services and the Queensland Youth Housing Coalition, provides the vision that will guide the department's approach to better housing assistance for young people in the future.
