Hobart City Deal
The Australian Government is providing $30 million for local organisations to boost the supply of social and affordable housing in Greater Hobart.
The funding is part of the Hobart City Deal to improve housing affordability issues in Hobart and will deliver more than 100 new dwellings for vulnerable Tasmanians.
The priority will be to house those most in need of housing from the Tasmanian social housing wait list including vulnerable people, older people, families and women fleeing violence, and people with a disability.
The Government is finalising contract negotiations to commence housing priority tenants by 30 June 2021.
