HomeBuilder package driving jobs in NSW

Published: 5 Jun 2020

The new HomeBuilder grant will provide $25,000 for those looking to build or renovate their home.


The Australian Government's new HomeBuilder grant will provide eligible owner-occupiers with a $25,000 grant to help build new homes or make substantial renovations to existing homes. 

The HomeBuilder stimulus package aims to support the thousands of workers in the NSW construction industry as well as businesses in the supply chain that depend on this critical industry.

Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the HomeBuilder grant complements our existing programs and is another important step on our road to recovery from COVID-19 (coronavirus). 

“We’re also rolling out the easy-to-use ePlanning platform to every council in NSW, which means home builders and renovators can process their development applications online and faster than ever before.”

Mr Stokes said he would expand the list of home building work that can be carried out as ‘exempt development’ to allow more construction to begin sooner, without planning approvals.
