Home Building Grants For NEW Home Builders

The government has announced changes to the first home owner grant. The changes will apply to eligible transactions between 20 November 2023 and 30 June 2025.

First home owners are expected to be able to apply for the increased grant from the first week of January 2024.


The Queensland First Home Owners’ Grant is a state government initiative to help first home owners to get their new first home sooner.

If your contract is dated 1 July 2018 or later, you can get the Queensland grant of $15,000 towards buying or building your new house, unit or townhouse (valued at less than $750,000). The grant is paid per new home; not to each of the applicants for the same home.

The grant amount has varied since it was first introduced in 2000. Contracts dated earlier than 1 July 2018 may still be eligible for a grant.

You can buy off the plan or choose to build yourself.
