AHURI has released a new report , Understanding opportunities for social impact investment in the development of affordable housing.

The report examines the opportunities for, barriers to, and risks to social impact investment (SII) for social and affordable housing in Australia.

SIIs aim to achieve a specific beneficial social objective together with a financial return, and measure the achievement of both.

The researchers looked at US and UK models and interviewed government experts, social impact investors and not-for-profit housing providers, to inform the analysis.
