Whether it’s building a new home or kick starting that long-awaited renovation, the HomeBuilder grant helps eligible owner-occupiers reach their home ownership goals.
HomeBuilder is a new tax-free grant from the Federal Government, designed to stimulate the residential construction market in response to changing housing conditions caused by COVID-19.
The scheme supports new home builders and those undertaking substantial renovations to an existing home. If the contract is signed between 4 June and 31 December 2020, you can receive a $25,000 grant and if the contracts signed between 1 January and 31 March 2021, you can be eligible for the $15,000 grant.
Homebuilder is available to home owner-occupiers for a limited time only. Eligible building contracts must be signed between 4 June 2020 and 31 March 2021 and construction or renovation work must kick-off within six months of the signed contract date.
HomeBuilder can be accessed by all owner-occupiers (including first home buyers and established home buyers) provided the eligibility criteria is met. The one-off grant payment is not available for owner-builders or investment properties.
To receive the HomeBuilder grant, you’ll need to:
You may be asked for some of the following documents:
✔ Proof of identity
✔ A copy of the contract dated and signed by the applicant and the nominated registered or licensed builder;#
✔ A copy of the builder’s registration or license, depending on state or territory requirements;
✔ A copy of your 2018-19 tax return (or later) to illustrate your eligibility under the income cap
✔ Documents such as council development approvals, building contracts, occupation certificates and evidence of land value.
More information on the documentation you will need to provide will become available through the relevant State or Territory authority.
