Pride in your Place awards

Public housing tenants who take pride in their house and yard are being rewarded for their efforts.

Formerly known as the “Public Housing Garden Competition”, the “Pride in your Place awards” are open to all public housing tenants in urban and remote areas of the Northern Territory.

Tenants are eligible to win a monthly prize of a $200 gift voucher and a certificate signed by the Minister for Housing and Community Development.

The monthly awards are designed to recognise and thank tenants who look after their garden and maintain their property.

Tenants can be nominated any time during the year by a staff member from the Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development.

So whether a tenant has an arid garden, their fruit trees are at their best in the wet, or their pot plants are in top shape in the dry – any public housing tenant is in with a chance to be one of our monthly winners.

To find out more, contact your local housing tenancy officer.
