About the Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027

Delivering safe, secure and affordable housing

The Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027 sets out the Queensland Government’s commitment to work with communities, industry and the housing sector to deliver a better housing future for all Queenslanders.

It’s a 10-year plan to deliver more social and affordable homes and to transform the way housing services are delivered as essential frontline services across the state.

The Housing Strategy is being delivered through mechanisms including:

We will promote housing growth and create connections for people with services and community, providing every Queenslander with the opportunity to fully participate in social and economic life.

Our objective

Every Queenslander has access to a safe, secure and affordable home that meets their needs and enables participation in the social and economic life of our prosperous state.

Working in partnership

The Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027 is a whole of government response to housing need. It is a future built through strong partnerships within government and with non-government housing, homelessness, and support services and the private sector.

We will work together to deliver:

  • holistic, proactive and person-centred responses for vulnerable people
  • improved liveability and prosperity of communities across the state
  • increased supply of diverse social and affordable housing.

Achievements so far

Since the launch of the Housing Strategy in 2017, we’ve been transforming the way housing assistance is delivered, increasing the supply of social and affordable homes, supporting construction industry jobs and partnering with non-government service providers to reduce homelessness.

Housing Strategy evaluation

In late November 2019, we partnered with the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) at the University of Queensland, working with ARTD Consultants, to evaluate the Housing Strategy.

The partnership is an innovative approach to evaluation, with the team from ISSR and ARTD working to jointly develop a monitoring and evaluation framework and assess progress and outcomes delivered. This partnership approach highlights that policy success is not just about achieving outcomes, but also about working with stakeholders directly and acting where needed.

Progress across key actions has been reviewed, with all progressing well but at differing degrees depending on the intent, scale and complexity of the action.
