Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes. Industry Forum

The first Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes. Industry Forum was held in April 2018.

This was an opportunity for businesses to learn more about the 10 year $1.1 billion Remote Housing Investment Package Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes and how you can get involved.

Representatives from the Department of Housing and Community Development were available to answer any questions, as well as other government agencies including the Department of Trade Business and Innovation, and the Department of Infrastructure Planning and Logistics. The forum focused on innovative solutions to all aspects of remote housing which is happening within industry.

Businesses were able to learn more about current support programs and subjects such as procurement rules, responsibilities and processes, and much more.

Attendees heard from great guest speakers including award-winning architect Kieran Wong who is developing a culturally and place-based response to housing settlement and design on Groote Eylandt and East Arnhem Land.

The forum was an opportunity for businesses to engage and learn from each other.

Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes.

The Northern Territory Government’s $1.1 billion Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes. Investment Package is being rolled across 10 years to improve housing in remote communities.
