This section provides a number of tools and resources specifically designed to support Aboriginal Community Housing Providers that are interested in registration under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (NRSCH) or the NSW Local Scheme.

Please note that these resources are being reviewed and updated progressively and some refer to the old Housing Aboriginal Communities Program (HACP) policy framework that has now been superseded by the AHO’s Housing Services Policy Framework and Guidelines:

Resources are provided as general advice only and should be updated to reflect each ACHP’s circumstances and the requirements of the AHO’s Housing Services Policy Framework and Guidelines.
