Victorian Budget 21/22

More homes – and more jobs – for Victorians

The pandemic has shown us how much a home really matters. It also made it clear just how many Victorians are missing out on that security and stability.

That’s why the 2020/21 Budget invested $5.3 billion in Victoria’s Big Housing Build.

Our Big Housing Build is building thousands of new homes for Victorians in need, while also supporting our recovery with 10,000 jobs each year over the next four years.

This Budget builds on our commitment to give more Victorians a place to call home, while continuing to drive our state’s recovery.

This includes:

  • $194 million for services that prevent homelessness, focusing on people who need help in the rental market, young people leaving care and vulnerable Victorians with complex needs
  • $26 million to better target early intervention for rough sleepers
  • $17 million to help the Victorians housed in hotels during the pandemic continue to find permanent accommodation
  • $9.1 million to build and operate a new Aboriginal refuge in Horsham to support victim survivors of family violence

Together these investments are ensuring more Victorians have the stable foundation of a home – and more Victorians have the security of a job.
