What is Homes Plus?
Homes Plus is a new way of delivering housing options for Indigenous Communities in Australia. This program considers both the house itselfÂ but also the additional items you may wish to add to your house to make it your home. Items such as shading, screening and outdoor sheltersÂ for cooking or for your cars will help to make your new home more suitable for the way you live.
Working through this website (or the catalogue) you will see you can select a home and a number of add ons, depending on your needs andÂ budget. The Add Ons will be delivered to site with your home and you will be joined by the Homes Plus team to build them yourself, or with aÂ few friends, depending on how big the project is. For the first few Add Ons, the Homes Plus team will be there to help out but before long youÂ and your friends will have all the skills you need to build the Add Ons yourselves.
How can I get involved?
If you are eligible for a new home, contact your Aboriginal Corporation to see if they are involved in the project. If they are you can beÂ registered and issued with a login and password which you will need to enter to complete the process. In the mean time, you can view theÂ Homes and Add Ons on the website (or in the catalogue) to see what Home and Add Ons will be best for you.
