National Partnership Agreement on Remote Indigenous Housing

​The National Partnership Agreement on Remote Indigenous Housing seeks to address:

  • Significant overcrowding
  • Homelessness
  • Poor housing conditions
  • Severe housing shortages in remote Indigenous communities.

Improving housing conditions is fundamental to achieving improvements in Indigenous health, education and employment.

Improvements in housing will make a major contribution towards closing the gap in Indigenous disadvantage.

In 2010–11 the Housing Authority delivered 84 new houses and refurbished a further 271.

We exceeded the target of 20 per cent local Aboriginal training and employment in the work carried out.
