Housing Infrastructure Fund

The Government is making $1 billion available to assist high growth councils to advance infrastructure projects important to increasing housing supply.

The indicative proposals stage, announced on 22 September 2016, represents the first of two stages through which eligible councils can apply for funding under the contestable fund. This stage presents a chance for council officers to test whether projects may be eligible for funding before newly elected councils confirm and submit their finalised proposals.

It is expected that final proposals will need to be submitted in March 2017.
