The Opposition has called on the government to match a multi-million dollar commitment to keep the Territory's struggling economy afloat amid the current coronavirus outbreak.
Opposition Leader Lia Finocchiaro said her government will introduce a $20 million Greener Safer Homes scheme immediately if elected in the upcoming election in August.
"Greener Safer Homes is a stimulus package that will support upwards of 5,000 homeowners to spend money on upgrades and get money flowing through our economy," Ms Finocchiaro said.
"We will introduce the scheme immediately if we win government.
"However, we call on the Labor Government to introduce this stimulus package immediately to ward off some of the economic impacts of coronavirus."
The stimulus package would grant thousands of Territory homeowners a dollar for dollar subsidy of up to $4000 to improve their homes and stimulate the economy.
Thescheme wouldmatch homeowner spends of up to $2000 for general home improvement upgrades and up to $4000 for works which specifically relate to upgrading energy efficiency or security of a home.
Mrs Finocchiaro said she recognises Territorians want to reduce their environmental footprint and protect themselves from crime.
"This scheme would boost work for local Territory tradies, get the wider economy moving and enhance housing quality," she said.
"What Greener Safer Homes means is that if you're thinking about retiling the bathroom, a CLP Government will chip in half the cost up to $2,000.
"If you want put in new security screens, CCTV or take steps to boost energy efficiency in your home, a CLP Government will provide half the cost up to $4000."
The NT Government has been contacted to see if it has plans to introduce a similar scheme.
