This paper1 presents the preliminary findings of a study examining the rationale and practices of stock transfer from State Housing Authorities to community housing associations in three Australian states - Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. The paper begins with a brief analysis of the policy context that has informed debates about housing management and supply options in Australia. The main section of the paper draws on written documentation and interviews with policy actors and tenants in each of the case studies to highlight the conflicts and tensions that surface in moves to reconfigure the management of public housing. Alongside a brief discussion about the policy themes that emerge from the findings, it is suggested in the conclusion that the continuing contestation and uncertainty about the stock transfer process is symptomatic of the national 'policy vacuum' about the future direction of public housing in Australia.
