Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 1 August 2019) . . Page.. 2654 ..


addition to hosting information about the scheme on the Community Services Directorate site, we have:

a. promoted the scheme (through paid advertising) on Allhomes;

b. held a number of information sessions for community stakeholders in the specialist homelessness sector to promote the scheme (and the safer families assistance program); and

c. promoted rental bond help through social media channels.

The ACT Government is also working with the real estate sector (through REIACT) to promote and educate agents about the new-look scheme; and, promotional activity will shortly commence in ‘Our Canberra’.

(6) In addition to the channels identified above (and in recognition of the scheme’s important role in promoting housing affordability), discussions have also begun with the private sector to explore non-commercial options for the ongoing promotion of the scheme to ACT private renters through digital rent-seeking platforms in the future.
