Housing opportunities portal

We’re looking for ideas with potential to deliver new housing stock.

We want solutions that will make land available for temporary or permanent housing, repurpose existing buildings into housing or innovative project ideas that we may be able match with other ideas to increase housing supply.

Submissions can be immediate to short term opportunities or opportunities that may have barriers to development, require cross-government collaboration or have a longer delivery time.

The types of submissions we will consider are:

  • land: if you own land, or are the trustee or hold a long-term lease over land, that may be suitable for delivery of a housing solution. This can include repurposing existing buildings.
  • idea: if you have a project concept that will address housing supply or deliver a particular housing solution.

Who can submit

Anyone over 16 years of age, private enterprise, not for profit organisations and local governments can submit an idea individually or as a group.

How we will use your submission

Your submission will be assessed by the department in consultation with relevant agencies and may be referred to a cross agency working group for further consideration.

You then will be advised of whether your idea is suitable for progressing further.  Your idea also could be referred to an existing Queensland Government program or initiative or used to help inform the future development of Queensland Government policies.

The Housing Opportunities Portal is in addition to and does not replace the significant existing initiatives already being implemented under the Queensland Housing Strategy and Queensland Government programs such as the Queensland Housing Investment Growth Initiative, the Housing Investment Fund, QuickStarts Qld and Help to Home.

If you have already submitted your land or idea through one of these existing programs, you do not need to submit these through the Housing Opportunities Portal.
