The Big Housing Build is the largest social and affordable housing building program in Victoria's history.

We're delivering modern, affordable and safe housing for more Victorians so they can live a life they value.

Ben Rimmer, CEO Homes Victoria

About us

Homes Victoria has been created for 4 reasons.  

First, to support Victorians who are finding it difficult to secure stable, affordable housing and help them live their best possible life. 

Second, to manage the more than $26 billion in housing assets that currently house more than 116,000 Victorians. 

Third, to renew and substantially expand those assets by ensuring the Big Housing Build is delivered on budget and on time.  

Fourth, to make sure we have a sustainable housing system that can deliver for generations to come.  

The Big Housing Build is the largest social and affordable housing building program in Victoria’s history.  

We will work closely with industry, the not-for-profit sector and the community to maximise social and economic benefits.  

Our priority is to fast-track new social and affordable housing right now – and plan for sustainable, long term growth in housing.  

Our governance approach will ensure we deliver on the Government’s objectives, and have the capability and commercial acumen to realise the benefits of this record investment on behalf of Victorians who experience housing insecurity and homelessness.  

We will listen to the experiences of people who know what it’s like to struggle to find a place to live. We will pursue evidence-driven reforms. And, above all, we will ensure more Victorians have a place to call home. 

Homes Victoria is currently a trading name of the Director of Housing.
