Housing Tasmania is an output group of the Division of Human Services & Housing, in the Department of Health and Human Services Tasmania. Housing Tasmania aims to provide access to adequate, affordable and appropriate housing for people on low incomes, and particularly for people who have specialist housing requirements.

Direct client services are delivered through 7 Housing Service Centres with access also available through Service Tasmania.

In 2003-04 expenditure was $115.9 million, of which the Commonwealth State Housing Agreement (CSHA) contributed $34.6 million.

Housing Tasmania is in the process of implementing their Affordable Housing Strategy which aims to increase the supply of safe, adequate and affordable housing for Tasmanians who receive low incomes. This will be achieved through a broad range of initiatives across all tenure types.
