Get Involved

Since June 2000, FACS  (formerly Housing NSW ) has actively encouraged tenants to get involved and play a part in shaping the delivery of public housing through tenant participation and consultation.

Funding is set aside each year byFACS  to run a number of activities that enable tenants to have a say in decisions that affect their homes and neighbourhoods.

Tenant Participation initiatives are supported by nominated District staff  at a local level, and corporately by   Communit Homes and Place in Ashfield.

Tenant participation aims to build partnerships between tenants and social housing providers to:

  • Improve the skills, knowledge and ultimately the quality of life of social housing tenants
  • Support and strengthen communities
  • Improve the way social housing is delivered and managed

Tenant participation initiatives include:

  • Community Development Resourcing Grants (biennial)
  • Tenant Participation Resource Service
  • Public Tenant Councils/Tenant Representative Organisations 
  • Housing Communities Assistance Program
