Remote Home Ownership Program and Action Plan Initiatives

Remote Home Ownership Program 

The Queensland Government committed $75 million in 2017 to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living on Indigenous land with pathways to private home ownership. Home ownership is a more secure form of housing than renting. Increased home ownership can help break intergenerational reliance on social housing, promote wealth creation and economic prosperity and support self-determination.

Home ownership initiatives under action plan 

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Housing Action Plan 2019-2023 outlines the commitment of the Department of Housing and Public Works and broader Queensland Government to helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders become home owners in remote, regional and urban areas. 

This builds on the government’s commitment of $75 million over 5 years to help residents of discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities achieve home ownership as part of the Queensland Housing Strategy 2017–2027

The Action Plan contains a number of initiatives designed to support home ownership. These initiatives include – 

  • the affordable sale of social housing properties in the Torres Shire 

  • home ownership roadshows 

  • Good Renter’s Discount: for the sale of social housing across Queensland

  • community toolboxes: to help home owners and tenants to do their own repairs and maintenance 

  • other partnerships and mechanisms: to improve access to home ownership pathways.
