Indigenous housing project wins international award

Date posted: 11 November 2011

A program which is giving Indigenous Australians in remote communities access to safe and well functioning housing has won a 2011 World Habitat award.

The Housing for health program, run by Health Habitat, beat an impressive field of over 250 entries from around the globe to take out the prestigious award which recognises practical and innovative solutions to current housing needs and problems.

Since 1999, Housing for health has improved over 7,300 houses around Australia targeting urgent safety and health improvements.

It is the largest, continuous housing repairs and maintenance program in Australia's history.
