Homes for Homes opens first-ever funding round

Homes for Homes is opening an initial funding round for projects that will increase the supply of social and affordable housing, with $300,000 available in Victoria and $200,000 available in the ACT.

Homes for Homes is an initiative of The Big Issue, established to tackle the chronic shortage of housing – one of Australia’s most pressing social issues – by creating a new, sustainable funding stream.

Experienced social and affordable housing providers, property developers and other not-for-profit and private sector organisations in Victoria and the ACT are invited to apply for funding.

Under the Homes for Homes model, money raised in each state or territory will stay in that state or territory to increase the supply of social and affordable housing locally available.

Everyone has the right to safe and secure accommodation, yet more than 105,000 people are without a home and 1.5 million households live in housing stress.
