The Victorian Government will provide access to safe and secure accommodation.

What will the money be used for?

The 2017/18 Budget includes investments for:

New social housing

Support another 2,200 new social housing places over the next  5 years, through our $1 billion Social Housing Growth Fund.

Low-cost loans

$100 million to fund low-cost loans and $1 billion in government guarantees to housing associations, to enable them to substantially expand their stock.

Safe and secure accommodation

$20 million investment to upgrade rooming houses in both the government and community sectors to support Victorians in need.

Community housing agencies

$3 million will be provided to transfer management of 4,000 public housing dwellings to community housing agencies, which are better placed to respond to the individual needs of each and every family.
