Sustaining Tenancies in Social Housing


Home » Sustaining Tenancies in Social Housing

The primary intended outcome of the STSH is to sustain the tenancies of households currently living in social housing where there is a significant risk of tenancy failure.

The ideal outcome is that program clients sustain their existing social housing tenancy for at least 12 months from the initial referral for support with no further breaches of their tenancy agreement.

STSH caseworkers work alongside tenants and provide case management and coordination for tenancy and underlying issues that may be hindering successful tenancies in the long term. By the end of the support period the tenant/household members capacity to manage their tenancies independently beyond the 12-month support period should have increased to allow long term sustainability of tenancies.

Referral to the program is via Department of Communities and Justice.
