TLALC currently owns 6 rental properties and leases a further 9 from the Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO). These properties are currently managed by Homes North Community Housing Company Ltd. We are PARS (Provider Assessment and Registration System) accredited, under the AHO Build and Grow Strategy. This makes us eligible to be registered as Aboriginal Community Housing Providers under the Aboriginal Housing Act (1998). The title of 4 of our 9 AHO (HACP) properties are currently being transferred to the LALC
AUSPICING OF FUNDS
Currently, TLALC auspices grant funds for the Opportunity Hub. Our outstanding 100% LMSS score allows us to confidently offer these services to a select group of organisations. These services generate revenue for us to reinvest in priority actions as identified by our membership through our Community, Land and Business Plan (CLBP).
We seek and submit Land Claims on Crown Land, and have that land transferred to our ownership in freehold title. Tamworth LALC has secured 13 parcels of land in addition to our office, and our 15 residential properties. Though there is a backlog with the Ministry at present, we are still active in providing this service.

The process is to fill out a New Membership Application form, submit to the LALC for consideration of members, and attend a member meeting to be accepted or denied .Please contact the staff at TLALC for information on how to obtain a New Membership Application Form.
