The Homebuilder Government Initiative was introduced by the Australian Federal Government to assist the growth of the residential construction market, by encouraging the commencement of new home builds and renovations this year. The program offers owner-occupiers a $25,000 grant that can be used to build either a new home or substantially renovate an existing home.
What is the HomeBuilder Government Initiative?
The new HomeBuilder Initiative is a time-limited, tax free scheme to support positive growth of the residential construction market during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
How will this help first home buyers?
The HomeBuilder Initiative will provide eligible owner-occupiers, including first home buyers, with a grant of $25,000 to build a new home or substantially renovate an existing home.
Is this available to Australians that are not first home buyers?
Yes, as long as the home being renovated is the applicant’s principal place of residence. Those looking to use the program for an investment property will not be eligible.
