Homes for Homes will open a new grant funding round for
social and affordable housing projects, with up to $160,000 available for the
first time across New South Wales and Western Australia. Up to $80,000 will be
available in both states.
Homes for Homes provides a way for the entire community to
help solve the issue of homelessness by raising funds for social and affordable
housing through donations from property sales.
Thanks to the support from property donors, PEXA and the
Homes for Homes community, sufficient funds have been raised to grant to
housing providers for the first time in NSW and WA.
Homes for Homes CEO Steven Persson said the organisation is
delighted to extend their support to new areas and projects.
“Homes for Homes is pleased to continue its expansion across
Australia and open up grant funding in new states. We are excited to welcome
applications from housing providers and play our part in the creation of social
and affordable housing in NSW and WA.
“Homes for Homes is dedicated to solving homelessness and
helping provide safe, secure housing for all, our success comes from strong
“We thank all those who have registered their properties
with Homes for Homes and those who contributed to the making of this new grant
round, in particular our strong partnership with PEXA,” Mr Persson said.
This funding milestone marks the fifth round of grants
released to community housing projects by Homes for Homes.
Previous grant rounds have seen $1.28 million granted to
social and affordable housing providers in the Australian Capital Territory and
Northern Territory, Victoria and Queensland, totalling 13 projects and
providing housing for 96 people.
Homes for Homes will continue to take a flexible approach to
the projects it supports. Housing providers can apply for grant funding in
either NSW or WA, or both.
“We are open to all applications, any organisation that can
create social and affordable housing is encouraged to apply,” Mr Persson said.
Projects funded by recent Homes for Homes grant rounds
include an Aboriginal Housing Victoria redevelopment of an underutilised
dwelling into two long-term social and affordable housing units for Aboriginal
tenancies, and a Community Housing Canberra group home to enable people with
mental illness to transition from living with ageing parents, to a more
independent model with 24/7 support.
Social and affordable housing providers in NSW and WA are
encouraged to apply for grant funding.
Applications will be assessed by expert, industry-based
advisory groups in both states.
