History

On 1 February 2009, the works function of the Department of Housing and Works was established as a separate entity within the Department of Treasury and Finance, called Building Management and Works.

The Department of Housing was established with responsibility for public and community housing, Aboriginal and regional housing, Keystart home loans and property sales.

Under the McGowan Government, a series of Machinery of Government changes were made to the public sector creating a number of new amalgamated departments. On 1 July 2017, the Department of Housing (including Housing Authority) was amalgamated with the following agencies: The Department for Child Protection and Family support; the Disability Services Commission; the communities function of the Department of Local Government and Communities; the Regional Services Reform Unit; and the regional coordination and engagement function of the Department of Aboriginal Affairs.
