Boost provides more housing access for Isaac’s essential service workers

Isaac region’s essential service workers are set to benefit from having access to 16 new affordable housing units thanks to a $8 million funding boost.

The Isaac Affordable Housing Trust (IAHT) board has welcomed the injection from round one of Resources Community Infrastructure Fund last week.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker, who chairs IAHT, said housing is a fundamental social need in the region.

“This funding will provide generational housing security for critical non-mine workers in our region,” Mayor Baker said.

The Isaac Affordable Housing Trust acknowledge and thank Isaac Regional Council, BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and Rio Tinto as a major funding partner in the delivery of affordable accommodation to residents in Isaac.
