May 4 – DHA

Palmerston Markets May 3, missing in “in-action”?

Defence personnel can access non-market housing without tight means testing or stigma. Defence Housing Australia (DHA) operates as a public housing developer to ensure that defence personnel have affordable housing options near key military facilities. They sometimes sell those properties to private investors with a long-term lease in place (called a leaseback) and build more homes to replace them. We know how to provide quality homes at a fair price but do it only for politically favoured groups.
