Hobart City Deal: Improving Social Housing Outcomes
The Australian Government is providing $30 million to 3 local community-housing providers in Tasmania. The funding will deliver more than 100 new social and affordable dwellings in Greater Hobart.
These dwellings will offer long-term housing of 30 years to those on the Tasmanian social housing priority list. This includes:
- elderly people
- those leaving family violence
- people at risk of homelessness
- people with a disability.
Designed to accommodate the needs of the occupants, the dwellings will meet the Liveable Housing Australia Sliver Standard.
As of December 2022, 125 new dwellings have been built and tenanted. The remaining dwellings are due to be completed by mid-2023. If you are a grant recipient under the Hobart City Deal: Improving Social Housing Outcomes, information on the designated use period and reporting templates can be found on the Designated Use Annual Reporting page.
