Delivering social housing and housing services

Improving housing affordability, reducing homelessness, and assisting Queenslanders to access the private housing market remain key priorities of the Queensland Government.

In June 2017, the government published its 10-year housing strategy (2017–2027). Through its new strategy, the government aims to transform how it delivers housing services, providing every Queenslander with access to safe, secure and affordable housing that meets their needs and allows them to participate in society.

The Department of Housing and Public Works is changing the way it does business with organisations that are funded to deliver social housing and ancillary housing services. The department’s initiatives include bond loans, rental grants, RentConnect, the Home Assist Secure program, and the National Rental Affordability Scheme. These are all aimed at helping low income earners access and keep housing in the private rental market.
