Dignity First Fund

The Queensland Government established the Dignity First Fund in 2016. The purpose of the Fund is to seek new and innovative ideas from non-government providers that aim to prevent and reduce homelessness and assist people experiencing homelessness to live with dignity.

To date, there have been three Dignity First funding rounds.

The first $2.5 million funding round closed on 30 September 2016, with 24 applications funded.

The second $2.5 million funding round closed on 10 May 2017, with 29 applications funded.

These projects are delivering a wide range of essential services that are making a real difference for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in our community.

The third $2.5 million funding round closed on 17 August 2018.

It is expected that successful recipients of this funding round will be announced by 1 November 2018.
