Housing, Homelessness and Sport

Housing, Homelessness and Sport delivers a range of housing support and sport and recreation services to Queenslanders.

Housing and Homelessness offers housing assistance to eligible Queenslanders through government-owned and managed social housing and funding to registered providers of community and local government-managed social housing.

Housing and Homelessness also provides funding to organisations that assist people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The social housing system is designed to ensure people in need receive appropriate, affordable and safe housing, and are supported by pathways that build and sustain independence. Improving housing affordability, reducing homelessness and assisting Queenslanders to access the private housing market are key priorities.

Talk to Housing and Homelessness about initiatives like bond loans, rental grants, RentConnect, Home Assist Secure and the National Rental Affordability Scheme.

Sport and Recreation supports and encourages participation and success in sport and active recreation through:

  • grant funding for sport and active recreation clubs and competition participation
  • infrastructure and infrastructure planning events, and state level organisations training and accreditation programs and resources
  • high quality sport, recreation, venue and accommodation experiences
  • promotional campaigns
  • support for the Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS).

Through these investments we aim to help more Queenslanders be physically active and connected to their communities.
