The Queensland Government has launched Homes for Queenslanders – an ambitious plan for a fair and sustainable housing system that ensures better housing outcomes both now and for future generations.

Homes for Queenslanders will deliver a generation’s worth of secure construction jobs and ensure that Queenslanders can afford to live and work in the community that they love.

The release of this plan will provide a funding uplift of an additional $3 billion over the next five years, adding to the investment government has already committed.

It aims to deliver one million more homes by 2046 – including 53,500 new social housing homes.

Homes for Queenslanders works across the housing system, including planning reforms, local government partnerships, housing construction and infrastructure, community housing providers and the homelessness sector.

It outlines the government’s vision for a fair and sustainable housing system under five key pillars:

  • Build more homes, faster – a whole of system approach to deliver one million new homes by 2046
  • Support Queensland renters – including a new Renters Relief Package to help Queenslanders find, get, and keep a rental
  • Help first homeowners into the market – new initiatives and measures for homeowners.
  • Boost our social housing ‘Big Build’ – target to deliver 53,500 new social homes by 2046.
  • Work towards ending homelessness – including a temporary 20 per cent funding increase to specialist homelessness services.
