A cheaper bed
COUNCIL and miners hoping cheaper accommodation will encourage people to mining towns
Wednesday 03 August 2016  

A partnership between BMA, Rio Tinto and the Isaac Regional Council is seeking to entice more workers into the Bowen Basin through the provision of cheaper accommodation.

Low and middle-income earners can apply for cheaper rental properties in Dysart and Moranbah under the Isaac Affordable Housing Trust (IAHT).

The Trust was set up to combat the problem of mining town housing becoming unaffordable during boom periods of high demand - especially for people not employed directly in mining.

Chair of the IAHT board Isaac Mayor Anne Baker, said there are modern two bedroom townhouses on offer.

“We want to make it more attractive and affordable for workers and families to live in our vibrant communities,” she said.

“Applicants will be assessed under the Isaac Rental Affordability Scheme (IRAS) and the National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS).

In 2014 IAHT increased the IRAS income earning eligibility bracket by 20 per cent, meaning more singles, couples and families could apply for affordable housing.

People interested in applying can check their eligibility at the Isaac Regional Council website.
