Applying for the North-West Aboriginal Housing Fund

Process for applying for funds in 2019

(If you require an accessible version of the content on this page please email

In April 2019 the North-West Aboriginal Housing Fund called for potential partners to put forward ideas that would contribute to the further achievement of Fund outcomes in the North-West.

Ideas have been submitted to the North-West Aboriginal Housing Fund through a Request for Expressions of Interest advertised on TendersWA that closed on 31 May 2019.

Now in Stage 1, the Fund will assess submissions through the Expression of Interest process for shortlisting to Stage 2. This assessment will confirm whether the high-level concept of each proposal is in-scope and has a reasonable prospect of achieving Fund outcomes before applicants commit significant resources to detailed proposal and business case development.

How do proposals get progressed through the Fund?

Concepts will be assessed in stages, and only progress from one stage to the next stage with Fund approval. All requests for funding start with the  Expression of Interest (EOI), which is Stage 1 below.

How will we evaluate EOI responses (Stage 1)?

An evaluation panel will shortlist EOI responses using the following criteria, with the Fund Board making the final decision on which responses progress to Stage 2.

Information sessions were held in Perth, the Kimberley and the Pilbara throughout March 2019.
