Today Homes for Homes opens a new grant funding round for social and affordable housing projects, with up to $400,000 available for projects in the ACT and Victoria. This marks the sixth round of grants released to community housing projects by Homes for Homes.
$200,000 will be available in the ACT and $200,000 available in Victoria, with $100,000 specifically for social and affordable housing projects in the City of Casey. This is the first time Homes for Homes is granting funds in a specific local government area (LGA).
As always, we will continue to take a flexible approach to the projects it supports. Housing providers can apply for grant funding in either the ACT or Victoria, or both.
This grant round was made possible thanks to the support from developers and homeowners in the ACT and Victoria, in particular those from Canberra suburb Denman Prospect, Development Victoria’s Taylors Quarter project and Balcon’s Orana development in the Victorian City of Casey.
Both Denman Prospect (by Capital Estate Developments) and Orana register all their properties with Homes for Homes and donate 0.1% of the sale of each block to Homes for Homes. Donations are granted in the state/territory where they are raised, and donations raised from partner projects, such as Orana in the City of Casey, can be granted within a specific LGA.
Homes for Homes CEO Steven Persson said the organisation is delighted to continue their support of new projects.
“Homes for Homes is on track to be the largest non-government funder of social and affordable housing. We are thrilled to again be granting funds across the ACT and Victoria. These funds are a direct result of the generosity of homeowners and developers paying it forward to help create housing for those in our community who need it most.
“We thank all those who have registered their properties with Homes for Homes and those who contributed to this new grant round, in particular our strong partnership with Capital Estate Developments and Balcon Group.”
Homes for Homes has received over $2m in donations and has granted $1.28 million to social and affordable housing providers in the ACT and NT, Victoria and Queensland, across thirteen projects providing housing for 96 people. Learn more about our funded projects here.
