Aboriginal Tenants at Risk Program
The Aboriginal Tenants at Risk Program (ATAR) provides assistance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are tenants, or prospective tenants of Aboriginal Housing Victoria or the Office of Housing.
What we do
Through individual support, the program aims to assist the tenant to maintain current housing and prevent them from becoming homeless.
A support worker can help:
- Support new tenants to achieve sustainable housing
- Provide intensive support for at risk tenants to avoid housing breakdown
- Provide assistance with priority transfers and new housing applications
- Provide assistance with issues that may place tenancy at risk
Who can access ATAR?
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are current or soon to be tenants of Aboriginal Housing Victoria or the Office of Housing. The program is offered within the municipalities of Greater Dandenong, Frankston, Casey, Cardinia and Mornington Peninsula.
