Hobart City Deal

The Australian Government is providing $30 million to three local community housing providers in Tasmania, under the social housing component of the Hobart City Deal.

The funding will deliver more than 100 new social and affordable dwellings in Greater Hobart, to address housing affordability issues in the region.

These dwellings will provide long-term accommodation of 30 years to those on the Tasmanian social housing priority list. This includes elderly people, those escaping family violence, people at risk of homelessness and people with a disability.

As of February 2022, 103 new dwellings have been built and tenanted, with the remaining dwellings due to be completed in 2022. Dwellings are designed to accommodate the needs of occupants, with an energy rating in excess of six stars and meeting the Liveable Housing Australia silver standard.
