Housing Investment Fund

We are calling on developers, institutional investors, registered community housing providers and eligible government entities to bring forward innovative proposals to add new social homes and additional affordable housing builds, refits or redevelopments across Queensland. Approved proposals will be funded through returns from the Housing Investment Fund, a $1 billion investment.

The Housing Investment Fund is targeting 4 housing supply priorities to increase social housing and affordable housing:

  1. homelessness and rough sleeping
  2. diverse rental supply
  3. housing choices for seniors
  4. homes for large households.

Proponents must commit to providing long-term, quality housing for people who face housing insecurity, including people at risk of experiencing homelessness, women and children escaping domestic violence, First Nations people, single older women, families, young people, seniors and people with disability.

By providing more social and affordable homes, we can help reduce general market demand, particularly for vulnerable people on low or fixed incomes.

Under the Housing Investment Fund, we are offering subsidies and one-off capital grants to fund proposals. Other forms of support may be considered for high-value proposals.

This flexible investment model is anticipated to attract proposals for social housing, additional affordable housing, and mixed-use developments, comprising a mix of housing solutions and other allied services. Proposed housing solutions must reach commencement by June 2025.

How to get involved

The procurement process has been designed to encourage a broad range of housing solutions and to maximise the opportunities to leverage State investment, while reducing bid time and expenses for proponents.

The Housing Investment Fund process will include 3 phases:

  1. Expression of Interest Phase
    • Review the resources including mandatory schedules and supporting guidelines.
    • Complete your pre-lodgement form. The form will help us determine the suitability of your proposal to progress to the next procurement phase and help us to ensure it is targeted to the most appropriate funding initiative.
    • We will review your pre-lodgement form and contact you about next steps.
    • If your proposal is assessed as suitable, you will need to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) in line with the information provided.
  2. Request for Detailed Proposal Phase
    • Submit more information through a detailed proposal.
  3. Assistance Agreement Phase
    • If your detailed proposal is accepted, final negotiations will take place with contracts finalised.

Timeframes for this process may depend on a range of factors, including the complexity of the proposal. We will evaluate responses in the order we receive them and consider them on merit.
