Compendium of Priorities and Initiatives (Continued)
New residential housing
Defence Housing Australia (DHA) will construct a total of approximately 919 homes for Defence personnel in 2010‑11. About 188 of these homes will be built under the Government's continuing Nation Building program which provided funding of $245.6 million for the period from 2009 to 2011. The remaining approximately 731 homes will be delivered under DHA's usual construction program.
Homes will be constructed near major Defence establishments including regional centres such as Cairns, Ipswich, Toowoomba and Townsville in Queensland; Sale and Wodonga in Victoria; Wagga, Nowra, the Hunter Valley and Riverina regions in New South Wales; and Rockingham and Karratha in Western Australia.
