Homes for Queenslanders: Action to Close the Gap for First Nations communities

The Queensland Government has announced new actions to help Close the Gap on housing for First Nations Queenslanders as it delivers its Homes for Queenslanders plan.

Co-designed by First Nations peoples and backed in with an initial $61 million investment, the Our Place Action Plan 2024-27 includes a raft of pathways to help First Nations peoples into home ownership.

It also establishes a dedicated community housing upgrade program to be delivered in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Housing Queensland.

Actions also include opportunities for the First Nations building and construction industry and delivering apprenticeships and training.

It was announced today at four completed homes on Brisbane’s northside built in partnership with Umpi Korumba Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Corporation for Housing.

The actions are outlined in Our Place: A First Nations Housing and Homelessness Roadmap to 2031 and Action Plan 2024-2027.
