ACT Public Housing Class Action

In this class action, our lead applicant, Gai Higginson, will claim compensation from the ACT Government for its conduct in their program from 1 July 2019 requiring public housing tenants to move from their homes.

If you were informed that you would be forcibly relocated from your home as part of this program, you may be eligible for compensation. Read more and fill out the form below.

In December 2023, we launched proceedings against the Australian Capital Territory in response to the conduct of Housing ACT in implementing the Growing and Renewing Program. You can read our Statement of Claim here.
