The aim of the Home Repairs Program is to improve households and living conditions of Gumala Members and their family. The program will provide financial assistance with property maintenance or repairs and renovations. The program will run from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024.


Members may access these funds to pay for any repairs or services for their home. Where a property is rented, maintenance requirements should be attended to by the landlord. Where significant maintenance or renovations are requested, proof of property ownership may be requested. Where the home is in the name of the Member’s spouse or another family member, this must be acknowledged by ticking the box on the program application form. All works should be carried out by a registered and licensed Australian business. A tax invoice or quote must be sourced from the service provider and sent to Gumala with the Flexible Program application form and any other documents as requested by GAC.
