The Torres Strait Regional Authority: housing and environmental health: community housing sub-program



The community housing program aims to maximise the provision of adequate and suitable housing for Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal people living in the Torres Strait region. This will be achieved through the planning, coordination and delivery of housing and infrastructure programs in the region. The program is also involved in helping Indigenous people to purchase their own homes.

It is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments and managed jointly by the government funders, the Torres Strait Regional Authority, Islands Coordinating Council and Torres Strait community councils.
