On 18 September 2015, Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing, Martin Foley announced the creation of a Housing Register to consolidate all social housing applications into a single register.

The register will improve the service provided to clients seeking housing by streamlining access to a broader range of social housing options. There will be a common housing application process and a mechanism for all social housing organisations to access one register to allocate vacant properties.

The register is being designed and implemented in partnership between the community housing sector, the homelessness services sector, including family violence, and the Department of Health and Human Services.
