Long-term housing

Supporting households to sustain long-term housing

$33 million

over two years

A home is the basic foundation for life. Without it, it's almost impossible to go to school, find a job or contribute to your community. That is why we’re extending private rental assistance to 4,000 disadvantaged Victorians.

With $33.2 million over two years, this assistance will help these Victorians find a home and begin to rebuild their lives. The funding builds on the one year of $16 million in funding announced as part of the Family Violence Housing Blitz Package.

This funding provides flexible support and practical assistance that is tailored to the needs of each household. The assistance is provided through private rental brokers who help people access or maintain private rental housing. It is short term in nature, in preference to more intense interventions, such as crisis and transitional housing.
