Renal Accommomdation Project 2017
In 2017, CAAH completed the Renal Accommodation Project, an 18 month project which involved the purchase and refurbishment of 10 houses in Alice Springs (8) and Tenant Creek (2). The properties were built to address the lack of housing available for end stage renal patients who need to relocate from remote communities.
The project was funded by the Department of Housing and Community Development through a partnership with the Commonwealth to create more family-centric renal accommodation. The project was managed by CAAH in partnership with Tangentyere Design, and the properties were delivered by MPH Projects, a local Alice Springs contractor.
CAAH has now been managing the properties as part of our community housing portfolio through a partnership with NT Department of Health which will continue for 10 years.
Bloomfield Affordable Housing Development 2015
In 2015, CAAH completed the Bloomfield Affordable Housing Development, a 2 year project which involved the purchase and development of 6a Bloomfield St, Gillen, NT. The project delivered 13 new affordable housing properties for working Aboriginal people and families, including eleven new 1 and 2 bedroom townhouses and 2 refurbished 3 bedroom townhouses. The project was part of the National Rental Affordability Scheme.
The capital for the purchase and development was provided through the Aboriginal Benefits Account, which is managed by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. The project was managed by CAAH in conjuction with Sue Dugdale Architechts and the properties were constructed by Morelli Projects, a local Alice Springs builder.
CAAH has now been managing the properties as part of our community housing portfolio for over three years offering over 40 people access to safe and affordable accommodation.
