Better Housing Futures in social housing

Housing Tasmania has launched Better Housing Futures, a new way of providing social housing services for Tasmanians.

Better Housing Futures provides social housing through community housing organisations to offer Housing Tasmania tenants a choice of landlord and improved housing services.

Better Housing Futures begins on February 1 in Rokeby and Clarendon Vale in the state’s south, and will include more suburbs statewide throughout 2012 and 2013.

Housing Tasmania is seeking submissions from community housing managers to provide place-based tenancy and property management services to support the first stage of Tasmania’s social housing reform.

The Request for Proposals is open from Saturday 4 February 2012 and is available from www.tenders.tas.gov.au
