The City is developing a Social Housing Plan that will take us to 2036, thanks to funding from the Department of Housing and Human Services.  The plan will identify social housing needs and suitable land, and explore options to increase the provision of high-quality, accessible social housing available in our City. 

Exciting and innovative approaches to social housing are emerging. Do you have great ideas and innovative solutions about ways to increase Social Housing, please email us direct at- socialhousing@geelongcity.vic.gov.au
