Alexander gardens ARC-20 Project
Combining underutilised housing stock & traineeship program to increase affordable housing supply.
Immediate renovation of 20 unoccupied one-bedroom cottage units and longer-term reconfiguration of additional Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF).
PresCare, a RACF provider in Central Queensland, will allocate 20 unoccupied one-bedroom units to be used for affordable housing as a fast-track approach to alleviating affordable housing stress.
This multi-staged project would increase the number of affordable units available, with the view of also providing training and employment opportunities.
