Four new homes were completed in Fitzroy Crossing this week as the rebuilding and recovery from the major floods in January 2023 continues.
On Thursday, Western Australian Housing Minister John Carey said it was "great" to see four new metal frame social homes have been completed in the Kimberley town.
"The new two-bedroom homes have been built to silver Liveable Homes standard by Kullarri Building and are now in the process of being offered to applicants from the public housing waitlist," he said.
In November law firm Slater and Gordon announced work was underway to launch a class action of Aboriginal remote community residents over substandard housing in Western Australia.There are a number of remote communities in the Fitzroy Valley.
This week, Mr Carey said the state government has invested a "record" $2.6 billion investment in social housing and homelessness measures.
"We've added more than 1,800 social homes, with more than 1,000 social homes currently under contract or construction, throughout Western Australia," he said.
"This is all part of the Cook government's $2.6 billion investment in housing and homelessness services in WA, including delivering around 4,000 social dwellings, and refurbishments and maintenance work to many thousands more."
