More Homes.

Adopting a housing first approach, the More Homes social lab drives solutions to increase the supply of safe, affordable, accessible, appropriate and secure homes for people in Australia on very low to moderate incomes. We know increasing housing supply is only part of the solution but it’s a sensible place to start.

Our current challenge question is:

By 2022, how might we create a pipeline of 100,000 homes for people on very low to moderate incomes?

In this context, homes mean safe, affordable, accessible, appropriate, and secure homes. Our work happens within a social lab, designed to enable cross-sector collaboration and accelerate solutions to solve complex social problems. Our social lab is composed of five small teams each working on a different solution to address the challenge.

More Homes Solutions

Our More Homes lab teams are operating at varying levels of development. Our ways of working draw on agile methodology with a develop, test and iterate approach. Some of the more advanced concepts are currently being tested with government. Work from the lab teams includes;

Federal/State Co Funding Model

A financial feasibility tool that enables federal and state governments to work more effectively together to significantly optimise housing outcomes.

Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning

A proposal to include social and affordable housing in all new housing developments.

First Nations Elder Village

A culturally appropriate aged care model that allows First Nations people to maintain connection to country and community as they age.

Housing Boost Aggregator

A solution to unlock private investment in social and affordable rental housing supply.

The Priority Project

A private rentals property register to provide medium to long term housing for women and children impacted by domestic and family violence.

Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning

The MIZ team have developed a framework which has been included into the Constellation Projects submission to the National Housing and Homelessness Plan
