QuickStarts Qld brings forward planned social housing investments to deliver a range of housing types based on local need, delivering more homes for Queenslanders, sooner.
Many of these projects are planned and ready to build. By bringing forward capital investment we can accelerate projects that support the changing needs of our regional cities and towns, as well as managing the demand for homes in our major population areas.
QuickStarts Qld is a strong investment in regional Queensland, stimulating local economies. It will deliver developments that respond to the changing needs of communities, while supporting the individual Queensland households who look to social housing as a safety net.
How will it work?
We’ve defined 9 development regions across Queensland, made up of local government areas from the far north to our southern border, and west through the Queensland outback. We’ll establish a 4-year pipeline of construction in these areas, including bringing forward planned construction to deliver more social housing sooner.
This includes accelerating work already programmed under the Queensland Housing Strategy. The approach may include strategic land or property purchases in these locations based on specific local need.
This construction program will be delivered through partnerships with community housing providers as well as capital build projects delivered by government.
What will be delivered?
Over the next 4 years, QuickStart Qld will deliver 2,765 new homes across Queensland to enhance the social housing portfolio.
A program of engagement is planned to connect registered community housing providers with opportunities through the QuickStarts Qld. Register to stay up-to-date about future expressions of interest.
Builders and trades should register with QTenders to see contract opportunities as they are released.
