New housing on Flinders Island

The Hodgman Liberal Government is delivering more housing for Tasmanians in need right across the State, including through our Government’s Affordable Housing Strategy.

Under the Affordable Housing Action Plan 2015-19 the ‘Stronger Remote Aboriginal Services program’ (SRAS), the Tasmanian Liberal Government has been working with the Flinders Island Aboriginal Association Inc and the Cape Barren Island Aboriginal Association Inc to enhance the long term sustainability of housing on both islands for aboriginal households.

Six new houses have recently been completed on Flinders Island from a $2 million investment.

Providing more affordable housing is a top priority, which is why we are investing an additional $125 million into Stage Two of our Affordable Housing Strategy, taking our total investment into affordable housing to almost $200 million over eight years – the largest ever state investment into affordable housing in Tasmania’s history.
