Governance committee for First Nations Housing and Homelessness

Following the launch of Our Place, we are forming a new governance committee – the Queensland First Nations Housing and Homelessness Partnership (QFNHH Partnership).

We are currently accepting expressions of interest (EOI) from people who wish to join. Read more about the partnership and how to submit an EOI.

About the partnership

The QFNHH Partnership will be a committee that shares decision making about First Nations housing and homelessness reforms in Queensland.

Over the next 2 years, the partnership will:

  • co-design a long-term approach to shared decision making
  • guide Queensland’s participation in the Closing the Gap Housing Policy Partnership
  • help shape investment decisions about First Nations housing and homelessness reforms in Queensland.

The QFNHH Partnership is established through the Our Place: A First Nations Housing and Homelessness Roadmap to 2031.

Committee membership

The QFNHH Partnership will be co-chaired by:

  • Chief Executive Officer, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Housing Queensland
  • Director-General, Department of Housing, Local Government, Planning and Public Works.

The QFNHH Partnership will include around 10 members with a majority of First Nations peoples.

Expressions of interest

We are seeking expressions of interest from people who wish to join the QFNHH Partnership.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are strongly encouraged to apply, including Elders, young people, and people from rural and remote areas, including the Torres Strait.

Applications close 4 June 2024.
