A Rural Housing Network project designed to rapidly re-house families affected by family violence is being showcased as an example of industry best practice at a national housing conference. 

In 2016 RHN received $3.3million that allowed the purchase of 17 properties – 11 being provided for family violence situations and six for long-term homeless through the Victorian government’s Rapid Housing Assistance Fund. The fund was set up after recommendations by the Royal Commission into family violence.
