The Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027 is a bold policy initiative that positions housing in Queensland as a key enabler for social and economic change. It is a ten year transformation of Queensland’s housing and homelessness service system to ensure those most in need are supported by a safety net of targeted early interventions, flexible packages of support, supportive social housing, and genuine wraparound services.

In partnership with the Department, ISSR, led by Professor Tim Reddel, is evaluating the Housing Strategy to increase the evidence base underpinning the Housing Strategy; clarify how the Queensland Government’s commitment to innovation and flexible support in housing service provision is realising real-word benefits for target groups; and inform future planning and investment.
