The deadline for Rockhampton Regional Council’s Housing Construction Grant is fast approaching, so make sure to get your application in before Tuesday 30 June to see if you’re eligible for $5000 toward your new build.
The grant is available for contracts on new home builds signed after 1 August 2019, with the home completed prior to 31 March 2021.
Rockhampton Region Mayor Margaret Strelow said she was happy to report the grant has already had a positive impact.
“Twenty-one Rockhampton households have built new houses in our Region with the assistance of this grant over the past 11 months,” said Mayor Strelow.
“And there are 87 more applications and builds in progress. This is a fantastic result so far for our whole community.
“We introduced this grant last year to encourage more growth and investment in our Region.
“We know that there is no other industry like the housing industry for stimulating jobs and retail spending.
“New builds see our builders, plumbers, electricians as well as our white goods and furnishing retailers receive a much-needed boost.
“Local builders have told us about clients of theirs where the $5,000 grant has made the difference between in deciding to go ahead with a build.
“There’s only two weeks left to get your application in, so if you’re about to build a new house in the Rockhampton Region please don’t wait to apply.”
