Queensland Housing Investment Growth Initiative procurement now open
The Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy (DCHDE) procurement process for the Queensland Housing Investment Growth Initiative (QHIGI) is now open. The QHIGI is a key component of the Queensland Housing and Homelessness Action Plan 2021 – 2025 and was established to accelerate the delivery of 6,365 new social homes, through a $1.813 billion investment in a four-year, integrated capital investment program across the State.
Each QHIGI funding program is designed to respond to specific housing need in communities throughout the state, with a focus on delivering better housing outcomes and moving vulnerable Queenslanders into safe, secure and affordable housing, sooner.
It involves three funding initiatives:
- The Housing Investment Fund – funding partnered projects to increase social and affordable housing supply.
- QuickStarts Qld – a capital investment program to accelerate planned acquisition, new construction and redevelopment opportunities to deliver new homes sooner.
- Help to Home – a partnership with property owners, landlords and registered community housing providers to headlease homes to people who are eligible for social housing.
