The National Indigenous Housing Guide is a tool to assist in the design, construction and maintenance of housing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The guide provides practical advice on the design, selection, installation, construction and maintenance of housing health hardware and other aspects related to environmental health, for example dealing with dust, insects and dogs. It is a resource for everybody involved in providing housing to Indigenous people, including community councils, Indigenous housing workers, council chief executive officers, architects, project managers, tradespeople and government officials.
