Ti-Tree Rental Housing CERC

 

The Common Equity Rental Housing Co-operative (CERC) Program provides for the establishment of viable, long term, non profit, consumer-controlled rental housing co-operatives. The Program uses government and loan funds to acquire properties which are then leased to approved co-operatives. Ti-Tree CERC is one such approved co-operative. There are other local CERCs in the Frankston area.

Ti-Tree CERC is a voluntary non-profit organisation that provides a supportive environment for members. These members take responsibility for all tasks associated with running a housing co-operative, including the management of houses rented to its members. The group meets monthly and can be contacted via

Post Box No. 632, Frankston, Victoria 3199, Australia.
