$500 million has been allocated over 2016-17 - 2026-27 to build new homes in remote communities under HomeBuild NT.
Each community has different housing needs and there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. We work with each community to identify their priorities around the type of housing to be built. For example, some communities prioritise housing for elderly residents or people with a disability while others prioritise housing for extended family groups.
Through local decision making, communities can have input into decisions about the type of housing needed, when the program is delivered, where housing is built, who does the work, and training and employment opportunities.
HomeBuild NT has a focus on innovative design and materials as part of its delivery.
