The Victorian Government has invested more than $1 billion in Homes Victoria projects in regional Victoria, with close to 3,000 homes either complete or underway.
Homes Victoria CEO Simon Newport said the $1 billion milestone was part of $2.25 billion that will be invested into social and affordable housing across regional Victoria.
“Homes Victoria and our community housing partners have been working to deliver quality social and affordable homes for regional Victoria since the start of the Big Housing Build in November 2020,” Mr Newport said.
“That includes $1.25 billion committed through the Big Housing Build, plus an additional $1 billion through the recently announced Regional Housing Fund, which is set to deliver more than 1,300 additional homes.”
Regional project update
The regional Big Housing Build project in Delacombe in Ballarat in Victoria’s west, is nearing completion.
The almost $3 million development will feature 11-homes and is being delivered through a partnership between Homes Victoria and CatholicCare Victoria Housing.
“This project is a great example of the modern, accessible and safe homes that are being delivered in regional Victoria for those who need them most,” Mr Newport said.
“Once completed, this development will provide safe, stable and secure housing for applicants on the Victorian Housing Register, including people experiencing or at risk of homelessness, older women, Aboriginal Victorians, and people with a disability or mental ill-health.”
CatholicCare will provide a range of support services to residents tailored to their needs. Services will assist with employment, mental health, family and relationships, school counselling and job readiness.
The development is due for completion in November.
