Public and community housing is an important part of Victoria’s social safety net and each year provides safe, secure, and affordable shelter to thousands of Victorians to help them rebuild their lives.
Getting a job, studying, participating in social activities and turning your life around is more achievable with a place to call home.
The Victorian Government is continuing to make significant investments to address housing and homelessness.
We’re committed to building new properties in key areas across Victoria which will see 1,000 new public homes built by 2022 – providing more people in need with a safe and secure place to call home.
The Victorian Government is increasing and renewing public housing properties, so more Victorians gain access to safe, secure, and stable housing. This includes a $1 billion social housing growth fund to deliver more social housing and a four-year $185 million program to redevelop public housing estates.
The Government’s continued investment demonstrates its commitment to providing public housing as an essential part of Victoria’s response to helping Victorians that need a home.
