We want every child and family that lives in our state to have a fair chance to thrive. That is why the Queensland Government is working towards a future where First Nations peoples in Queensland have a fairer housing system.

Without the foundation of a home, First Nations peoples are further marginalised and excluded from opportunities for social, cultural and economic participation, compromising the impact of investment and efforts to close the gap.

We have launched Our Place, an 8-year roadmap to help close the housing gap for First Nations peoples in Queensland by 2031.

Our Place includes:

Backed by a $61.3 million investment, Our Place Action Plan will accelerate First Nations housing outcomes to deliver outcomes across the housing and homelessness systems.

Homes for Queenslanders aims to deliver 1,200 social homes in First Nations communities, in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander local government authorities and communities.

Together, Homes for Queenslanders and Our Place will optimise outcomes for First Nations peoples and communities and make strong progress towards closing the housing gap in Queensland.
