The Green Building Council of Australia has partnered with Homes for Homes – an initiative helping to raise an ongoing supply of funding for social and affordable housing.
The partnership enables residential and commercial Green Star projects to receive up to two points for the ‘Social Enterprise for Affordable Housing‘ Green Star Innovation Challenge.
Developers of residential and commercial properties can participate as ‘wholesale’ participants whereby properties are marketed and sold as ‘Homes For Homes Participating Properties’. This can be developments that include the sale or lease of commercial property.
Participating developers agree to donate to Homes for Homes 0.1 per cent of either the sale price or the lease income on a commercial property at the start of each term.
