Up to $2000 available for home renovations

The Northern Territory Government is investing $20 million in a Home Improvement Scheme which offers homeowners up to $2000 towards renovations.

It will boost small businesses involved in home improvement, repairs and maintenance to keep work flowing in the Territory.

From 4 June 2016, Territory homeowner-occupiers can apply for a voucher worth up to $2,000 towards minor improvements, repairs and upgrades to their homes.

Homeowner-occupiers can use the voucher for works of up to $20,000 carried out by a Territory small business which is registered with the scheme. 

It is only available to Territory homeowner-occupiers and they will need to contribute at least half of the cost of works.

Up to 30% of the voucher value can be used towards good and materials as part of the job.

The Home Improvement Scheme is a simple way to make a big difference for small businesses and tradies.

The scheme will be open until 30 June 2017.

More information is available at the Home Improvement Scheme website where tradies and small businesses can also register.
