Sustainable Housing is housing that encourages long term tenure by being affordable, well located, energy efficient, and designed to be adaptable to the changing needs of clients. HHC provides long term viable housing solutions for a range of people through a range of products. To be sustainable our products aim to ensure our clients are not placed in housing stress, which is, not paying more 30% of their income in repayments or rent.
We are a not for profit charity formed for the specific purpose of alleviating housing stress among home owners and tenants on or below average income levels. HHC is a registered Australian Company limited by shares, and has fourteen not for profit and industry shareholders who elect nine voluntary Directors.
