Statement on Federal Government's introduction of a Housing Legislative Package into Parliament
The National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) notes the Federal Government’s introduction of a Housing Legislative Package into Parliament today. Once passed, the legislation will enable the delivery of a range of housing policy commitments announced in last October’s Federal Budget.
The legislation includes renaming NHFIC as Housing Australia, and expanding our functions to assist in delivering more social and affordable housing for Australians.
Subject to the timeframe for the passing of the enabling legislation, NHFIC will liaise with stakeholders regarding any operational impacts to ensure a smooth transition.
NHFIC looks forward to continuing to deliver the Home Guarantee Scheme, Affordable Housing Bond Aggregator and National Housing Infrastructure Facility to improve housing outcomes for Australians.
