 Indigenous Housing Programs

​The Department of Housing and Public Works' Indigenous Housing Programs aims to address housing and overcrowding in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through provision of social housing programs to 16 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander councils, encompassing 34 discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. This support includes construction of new houses, an annual upgrade program and provision of planned and responsive maintenance to improve housing for tenants. 

In addition, Indigenous Housing Programs provide support for tenancy management and capacity building to the 16 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander councils.
 
Legislative reforms introduced in 2008 enable eligible people to become homeowners on Indigenous land by acquiring a 99-year home ownership lease for private residential purposes.
