Housing and homelessness

A range of assistance is available to Queenslanders who need access to housing.

The social housing system helps people in need access appropriate, affordable and safe housing, supported by pathways that build and sustain independence.

Other government initiatives help thousands of low income earners access and sustain housing in the private rental market.

Our main aims are to:

  • improve housing affordability
  • reduce homelessness
  • help Queenslanders access the private housing market.

Below you'll find information for housing tenants, applicants and providers. Contact us if you have further queries.
