Regional home building boost grant

The regional home building boost grant is a state government initiative to help home owners in regional Queensland into their new home sooner. It will give you $5,000 after the purchase or construction of a brand-new house, unit or townhouse valued at less than $750,000.

If you are a senior, you may be able to get a separate Seniors and Accessibility Assistance grant—one-off assistance of up to $5000 for larger home repairs or upgrades to improve home safety or security.
