Homes for Victorians

Last updated: 20 February 2018

Homes for Victorians is the Victorian Government’s response to the housing affordability crisis in Victoria.

The $2.6 billion Homes for Victorians plan will increase and renew public housing and address homelessness.

The plan includes:

  • $1 billion Social Housing Growth Fund to increase the supply of social and affordable housing
  • $1.1 billion in financial support for the social housing sector
  • Increased housing support for survivors of family violence through the $152 milion Family Violence Housing Blitz
  • An extra 913 social housing dwellings through the $120 million Social Housing Pipeline
  • $109 million to help move homeless Victorians into stable housing
  • $185 million Public Housing Renewal Program
  • $33 million to help 4,000 Victorians get a private rental home.

The Homes for Victorians plan should result in:

  • Around 6,000 new social housing homes
  • About 2,500 existing public housing residences renewed
  • Help for 19,000 people who are homeless or at the risk of being homeless.

More information on the plan is on the Homes for Victorians website.
