The Eastern Affordable Housing Alliance (EAHA) is a collaboration between six Local Government Authorities (LGAs) located in the Eastern Metropolitan Region (EMR) of Melbourne including the cities of Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Monash, Whitehorse and Yarra Ranges.

The Alliance aims to ensure that the most disadvantaged people in the EMR can access safe, secure, affordable housing, with a view to better health outcomes and higher quality of life for all. Our primary means for achieving this aim is advocacy.

To this end the EAHA works to create enabling environments for increased investment by government and non-government stakeholders in social and affordable dwellings in the EMR.

Housing affordability is a growing problem in the Eastern Region of Melbourne (and Australia-wide).

While many of the factors that influence housing affordability are structural and beyond the control of local government, a clear understanding of the scale of affordable housing needs in the region is a first step to enabling a response to increasing affordability.

Research has been conducted to assess the needs of our community and the compiled in the following report:

Minimum Supply of Social Housing Eastern Metro Region 2016-2036
