Am I eligible?
To be eligible for community housing, the primary housing applicant must:
- not currently own a property
- be 18 years or over
- be a Northern Territory resident
- have never been evicted from Yilli Housing
- be identified as Aboriginal or Torrest Strait Islander
You are required to fill out the Housing Application Form plus 100 points of identification to be included with your application before it can be processed. Photo identification and current income statement is required in all applications.
Due to limited housing stock in the communities, we have a waiting list for people who applied for community housing. Only applicants who have completed the application form and the 100 points of ID will be put on the waiting list. It is important to keep your contact number updated, so that we can contact you when a house becomes available. Our waiting list is different from the list that the Territory housing has.
