Originating in Australia in 1993, CHL has spread its operations to South Asia, South-East Asia and South America. CHL currently has a portfolio of more than 9,000 properties under management in Australia across six States including Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland* and Tasmania.
Internationally, CHL has developed strategic partnerships with governments and government agencies and is delivering affordable housing projects in Timor Leste, Chile, Peru, Rwanda, Indonesia,PNG and India. CHL is highly experienced in the delivery of affordable housing.
In May 2018, Queensland based Horizon Housing announced its decision to integrate with the CHL Group of Companies adding its 2,400 properties to CHL’s already sizeable portfolio of 6,800 properties.
By November 2018, this will grow to 11,000 plus properties as an additional 1,400 properties are transferred to CHL NSW on the mid north coast.
CHL has over two decades of leading edge experience working in partnership with national and state governments, local government authorities, social support agencies, and community groups to address local housing affordability problems. CHL creates stronger communities by keeping local residents in their local area.
In Australia, CHL provides end-to-end affordable housing development and a long-term housing and tenancy management operation. This includes engagement with communities where there is housing need, project conception, securing finance, land acquisition, project design and construction supervision, and long term rental management of housing for low to moderate income people.
CHL is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. It operates like any other limited company, but all financial surpluses remain in the company to be reinvested in quality affordable housing for people in need, wherever they may be.
