Housing Connect - Your new way to connect to housing and support

The Housing Connect System

The Housing Connect System is made up of three service types

  1. Front Door services
  2. Housing Support services
  3. Crisis and Transitional Accommodation services.

Housing Connect is where people go for housing assistance and support.  It provides one assessment for everything from emergency accommodation to a long term home.

Housing Connect services help low income and vulnerable Tasmanians, including people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to find or maintain appropriate and affordable homes.

As depicted in the diagram below, through Housing Connect people can apply for private rental assistance, social housing and supported accommodation, or they can be safely housed during a time of crisis. Housing Connect can also provide people with housing related support and information, advice and referral to other support services available to them in Tasmania.

The picture describes the Housing Connect System. It outlines that people can apply for assistance through the Front Door and then access a range of services. More information is outlined in the Fact Sheet The Housing Connect System that can be found in the Resources section of this page.
