LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sir – Australian Army personnel from the 6th Engineer Support Regiment (6ESR) are building homes in Titjikala, about 100 kms south of Alice Springs, as part of the Army Aboriginal Community Assistance Programme.
Engineers and tradesmen are constructing four duplexes housing which will help reduce overcrowding within existing community houses.
The AACAP contingent are living and working in the Titjikala area from June to mid October 2015.
AACAP is a collaborative partnership between the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) and the Australian Army. It aims to improve environmental health and living conditions in remote Indigenous communities.
Resourcing of each project is shared between PM&C, which provides up to $6 million per project, and the Army, which contributes significant personnel and equipment resources to deliver the works.
