The Department of Housing and Public Works looks after housing and homelessness services in Queensland.

There are currently major reforms being delivered by this department, including the Housing 2020 strategy, the Homelessness-to-Housing Strategy 2020, and the Logan Renewal Initiative.

Housing and Homelessness Services plays an important role in providing housing assistance to people who need it most. Housing and Homeless Services support a social housing system that provides safe, secure, affordable and appropriate housing which improves the lives of Queenslanders.

Housing and Homelessness Services delivers a range of housing assistance services through government-owned and managed social housing, and grant funding to registered providers of community and local government-managed social housing. We also work to help people access and sustain housing in the private rental market, through bond loans, rental grants, RentConnect, the National Rental Affordability Scheme and the Tenant Advice and Advocacy Service.

By taking a responsive, integrated and flexible service approach in developing solutions to meet housing needs, Housing and Homelessness Services aims to contribute to individual, family, and community sustainability.
