Eastern Affordable Housing Alliance (EAHA)
The Eastern Affordable Housing Alliance (EAHA) was formed in 2009 and brings together local government authorities in Melbourne’s eastern metropolitan region including:
- Knox City Council
- Manningham City Council
- Maroondah City Council
- City of Monash
- Whitehorse City Council
- Yarra Ranges Council
The EAHA works to ensure everyone with low and 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 set to continue, which means at least 1,170 affordable homes will be required every year over the next 10 years to address this gap.
