Approximately 140 staff are employed by Territory Housing, with offices in Darwin, Palmerston, Katherine, Nhulunbuy, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek. The Northern Territory is approximately I 352 000 km2 in area. Territory Housing is responsible for providing housing services throughout this region. For locations of housing services refer to Map of Services on inside front cover Territory Housing operates under two distinct arms; - the Department of Housing known as Territory Housing; and - the Government Business Division known as Territory Housing Business Services Services relating to rental housing assistance, Government employee housing and home ownership are provided through Territory Housing Business Services.
