Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute

AHURI is a not-for-profit independent national research organisation that conducts and disseminates high quality research on housing, homelessness, and cities. These activities inform the policies and practices of governments, industry, and the community and stimulate debate in the broader Australian community.

AHURI is a unique venture. A professional research management company works with a collaborative network of researchers, universities, and the policy and practice community nation-wide.

AHURI currently invests around $3.2 million annually in the delivery of high quality policy-oriented housing research and associated activities.

Funding is received from three sources: government grants from the Australian and all State and Territory governments; contributions from the Institute’s university partners; and third parties.
