The Queensland government’s plan for government-run community and local housing and housing-related services in 2011 is captured in the State of the Community Housing Authority. The statement describes the contribution of government-run local community and housing and housing services within the social housing system, why a restoration is required, and the best priority of the department to achieve the vision.
To support providers in delivering a system of strong and viable social housing, a number of mechanisms have been established through the Strategy for Strengthening Social Housing.
