Anyone using or hoping to utilise the services offered by community housing should be aware of the key community housing provider in the Lismore electorate, Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George MP said today.

Community housing providers are independent organisations, either non-government, local government or religious organisations, which my receive assistance from Housing NSW to provide affordable rental housing to people on low to moderate incomes, and people with special needs.

Community housing providers are responsible for all tenancy management issues. They are also responsible for maintaining properties under their management including day-to-day maintenance and repairs.

In Lismore, the community-housing provider to contact is the North Coast Community Housing Company. The company is located at 31 Carrington Street, Lismore, and their phone number is 02 6627 5300. John McKenna is Executive Officer and he can be emailed at
