Assistance to Aboriginal people to access housing is available to those who:

  • are low-income earners based on income eligibility limits for a Services Australia Health Care Card and
  • have financial assets less than $35 000.

Aboriginal housing applicants must satisfy the requirements of the Eligibility for Tasmanian Government Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Programs and Services Policy, unless they have previously been deemed eligible to access a Tasmanian Government Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander program or service.
