117 Department of Housing, Local Government and Regional Services The Remote Public Housing output increase in 2011-12 is due to the carryover of funding from 2010-11 into 2011-12 and additional one-off Commonwealth funding to support the delivery of new and refurbished remote housing. The decrease in 2012-13 is due to one-off Commonwealth funding in 2011-12 and revised timing of Commonwealth payments under the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Indigenous Housing. The Government Employee Housing output increase in 2011-12 is predominantly due to additional funding for increased employee housing, with negotiations for 2012-13 continuing. Urban Public and Affordable Housing Provide safe and appropriate public and affordable housing to eligible Territorians. In collaboration with the community housing sector, assist in delivering crisis and supported accommodation to clients with high and complex needs.
