NT grants available for electrical and fire safety upgrades

The Northern Territory Government is investing more than $2.1 million to improve safety of housing in homelands across the Territory under two programs.

The Electrical and Fire Safety Maintenance Program for the Northern and Arafura regions has $1.1 million available for projects that will improve the safety and conditions of homeland residents through the reduction of risk of electrocution, electrical fire and electrical hazards.

A further $989,000 will be allocated through the East MacDonnell Homelands Housing Upgrade Program to housing and infrastructure maintenance and upgrades.

Suitably qualified and eligible businesses are invited to apply for these two grant opportunities and must hold a current Contractor Accreditation Limited (CAL) accreditation equal to or greater than the value of the contract.

Works for both programs are expected to commence in July 2021 and to be completed and invoiced by 30 June 2022.

Applications for grants are now open and close on Monday, 17 May 2021.

To apply, go to grants.nt.gov.au.
