This bulletin is based on research which investigated how well the remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing reforms introduced in 2008 under the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Indigenous Housing (NPARIH) are working.

The bulletin looks at:

  • context
  • what the NPARIH reforms have achieved
  • what areas need to be improved
  • policy implications.

Key findings from the research noted that while much had been achieved to improve housing management in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities under the NPARIH, there are other areas that require further development.

The research was conducted by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute.
