NT Housing Strategy 2020-2025

A Home for all Territorians: the Northern Territory Housing Strategy 2020-2025 was developed in partnership with key internal and external stakeholders and launched by the department in December 2019.

The strategy sets out a framework, guiding principles and actions to promote increased access to social and affordable housing, private rental and home ownership across urban, regional and remote communities. It builds on existing programs and seeks to leverage new ideas and partnerships to create improved outcomes for individuals, families and communities.

During 2019-2020, the department started work on a number of projects and activities outlined in the strategy including:

  • Developing a Property and Tenancy Management Framework to outline strategic and operational directions for property and tenancy management services delivered under the Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes. Remote Housing Investment Package.
  • Initiating a review of Government Employee Housing (GEH) to identify opportunities to streamline the allocation and management of GEH, improve its use, better meet demand and improve overall efficiency across the GEH asset portfolio.
  • Working with the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics to facilitate an increase to public, social and affordable housing stock through strategic land use planning and area planning processes where possible.
