Indicative Program of Grants

This program of grants has been prepared to support implementation of Tasmania’s Affordable Housing Action Plan 2019-2023 (Action Plan 2).  This program represents the new services that the Department of Communities Tasmania intends to commission through to 2023 to meet the targets established under Action Plan 2.

For grants to be released by open process, the Department will advertise these grants in Tasmania’s major newspapers and on the Communities Tasmania website.

The program is indicative only and release dates may change due to a number of elements, resulting in the program being revised from time to time.
