Abstract: This project is positioned in the context of reforms to remote Indigenous housing that aim to improve housing conditions and expand housing options. The study is especially concerned with reforms to property and tenancy management and asks what forms tenancy management arrangements are taking in different jurisdictions and what factors have influenced these decisions. The policy framework for housing reforms in remote Indigenous communities is the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Indigenous Housing (NPARIH) and the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Service Delivery (NPARSD). The NPARIH establishes a 10-year (2008–2018) housing strategy in which the Australian Government has provided funding to the states and the Northern Territory for the construction of new housing, refurbishment of existing homes and management of housing on remote Indigenous communities. The NPARIH building and refurbishment program is scheduled to deliver up to 4200 new houses and rebuild or refurbish around 4876 existing houses by the end of 2018 .
