Construction and jobs

Delivering a long-term pipeline of work for local builders and trades.

Queensland is a great place to live and as our population grows, so too does the demand for housing and associated services. It is important that we invest now in preparation for future demand.

The $1.8 billion Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027 will deliver more social and  affordable housing across the state and transform the way that housing services are delivered, to better support people in need and create a pipeline of development opportunities for local trades and builders.

The Housing Construction Jobs Program will help address the State’s long-term housing needs by supporting and accelerating new construction and precinct development.

We are also transforming the way that housing services are delivered to better support people in need and offer more early intervention and prevention services.

As at 30 June 2019, the Housing Construction Jobs Program has supported 1,307 full-time equivalent jobs since the inception of the program.
