Broome North Affordable housing

Welcome to our Broome affordable housing program, providing accommodation for keyworkers on low to medium incomes.

These homes are for keyworkers1 and their families. Keyworkers are those who work in the community in an essential role but who are not eligible for social housing as their income is too high. The one and two-bedroom properties are all located in Broome North.

They are currently all occupied, however as leases come to an end and income eligibility changes, homes do become available. If eligible, your details will go onto our waitlist.
