Eastern Affordable Housing Alliance

Housing affordability is a growing problem in the Eastern Metropolitan community.

Eastern Affordable Housing Alliance (EAHA) advocates affordable housing to those who most need it.

How we work

The EAHA unites six Local Government Authorities in the Eastern Metropolitan Region of Melbourne. These are:

  • Knox
  • Manningham
  • Maroondah
  • Monash
  • Whitehorse
  • Yarra Ranges.

EAHA aims to ensure everyone with low to moderate incomes in the region can access safe, secure and affordable housing. In Melbourne’s eastern region accessing both social and affordable is a growing challenge requiring urgent attention.

Decades of under-investment have led to the demand for social housing outstripping supply by almost 50% in 2021.

At the same time, access to affordable rentals has decreased by more than 25% over the past 10 years. These trends are forecast to continue, meaning that at least 1,170 affordable homes will be required every year over the next 10 years to address this gap.
