Hobart City Deal
The Australian Government is providing $30 million to four 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, victims of family violence, people at risk of homelessness and people with a disability.
As of December 2020, 48 new dwellings have been built and tenanted, with the majority of remaining dwellings due to be complete by the end of 2021. 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.
