The Community Housing sector would like to congratulate Aboriginal Housing Victoria (AHV), Minister Foley and the Andrews Government for the recent commitment to transfer the ownership of 1448 properties to AHV over the next 2 years – starting the initial tranche of 511 properties.

This is the beginning of the largest transfer of property of any Government in the country to a community housing organisation.

Jenny Samms, the CEO of AHV, said the change put Aboriginal people “on the map” in Victoria where native title had traditionally delivered few benefits to the Indigenous community.
