Scope:Help on this term

The Indigenous Community Housing (ICH) data set specification defines information about Indigenous community housing organisations (ICHOs), the dwellings they manage and the households assisted.

ICHOs are any Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander organisations that are responsible for managing housing for Indigenous people. This includes community organisations such as resource agencies and land councils, which have a range of functions, provided that they manage housing for Indigenous people.

The ICH data set specification includes dwellings:

  • managed by Indigenous community housing organisations (ICHO)
  • available for medium- to long-term housing tenure
  • targeted to Indigenous people.

The ICH data set specification excludes dwellings:

  • managed under:
    • community housing (i.e. not managed by an ICHO)
    • public housing (PH)
    • state owned and managed Indigenous housing (SOMIH)
    • the Crisis Accommodation Program (CAP).
  • no longer under the administration of the ICHO at 30 June of the reference year (including dwellings demolished, sold or otherwise disposed of); and
  • not yet available to the ICHO at 30 June of the reference year (including those still under construction or being purchased).
