Our Place Action Plan
The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) welcomed the opportunity to provide feedback on the Our Place: A First Nations Housing And Homelessness Action Plan 2024-2027 Consultation Guide (Consultation Guide) released by the Department of Housing (Department) on 12 June 2023.
We noted the purpose of the Consultation Guide was to invite consultation on what matters should be included in the Our Place: A First Nations Housing And Homelessness Action Plan 2024-2027 to commence in 2024 and replace the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Housing Action Plan 2019-2023 (ATSIHAP).
The REIQ has a proud history of working collaboratively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing providers and supporting initiatives and programs focused on housing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We have also forged an excellent working relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Housing Queensland (ATSIHQ) since its inception in 2021.
We respectfully acknowledge the importance of feedback provided by ATSIHQ, First Nations persons and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing providers in this consultation process. The voices of First Nations persons should lead discussions on this issue.
