This round table report by the National Shelter brought to light the issues Indigenous Australians face in regards to housing.
Aboriginal housing organisations have a mix of tenants and rent levels. If they move towards the most common social housing policy settings, there are ongoing eligibility requirements which ask you to move on tenants whose circumstances improve.
This doesn’t work for Aboriginal tenants because they experience discrimination, and for the organisations because their income declines. In addition, what is currently on offer does not appear to organisations to offer a path towards sustainability – the funds on offer at this point only address immediate maintenance issues.
