Housing Policy

The Western Australian Government seeks to improve people’s access to secure, appropriate and affordable housing.

We achieve this objective in a range of ways, from delivering traditional housing assistance to influencing the development of an effective and responsive housing system.

Our responses to housing needs are guided by the Affordable Housing Strategy 2010-2020: Opening Doors to Affordable Housing​.

This plan shows how we will support the development of stronger Western Australian communities.

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.
