Dignity First Fund

The Dignity First Fund is a key action of the Queensland Housing Strategy 2017–2020 Action Plan, and provides one-off grants to support new and innovative ideas from
non-government providers that:

  • prevent and reduce homelessness
  • help people experiencing homelessness live with dignity.

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

The Queensland Government established the Dignity First Fund in 2016. In each round, $2.5 million is allocated across multiple approved applications:

  • 24 applications were funded in 2016
  • 29 applications were funded in 2017
  • 42 applications were funded in 2018.
