Through the Affordable Housing Bond Aggregator (AHBA) and the National Housing Infrastructure Facility (NHIF), NHFIC supports the delivery of more social and affordable housing for vulnerable Australians.
NHFIC provides long-term and low-cost finance through the AHBA to registered Community Housing Providers (CHPs) to support the provision of more social and affordable housing. NHFIC raises the funds for these loans by issuing social and sustainability bonds.
Through the NHIF, NHFIC lends, invests and provides grants to help finance the housing-enabling critical infrastructure needed to unlock and accelerate new housing supply (the NHIF CI). The NHIF also provides concessional loans and grants to directly support new social or affordable housing projects (the NHIF SAH).
