With the economic pressures of 2023, including rising interest rates and living costs, homeowners in Queensland, like many across Australia, are feeling the financial strain. If keeping up with your home loan repayments is a challenge, Queensland offers a helping hand.

The Queensland Government offers the Mortgage Relief Loan. A Mortgage Relief Loan is an interest free loan of up to $20,000 which must be repaid over a 10 year term. For a list of eligibility criteria and more information on a Mortgage Relief Loan, click here.


Rental Assistance

If you have encountered a unique circumstance which has prevented you from being able to afford your rent, you could apply for a Rental Grant. A Rental Grant is a once-only grant of 2 weeks rent to help tide you over. The available funds are limited so you must meet a particular criteria to be eligible.

If you are receiving a benefit payment from Centrelink, you might also be eligible for ongoing rental assistance. The amount of Rent Assistance you may get depends on the type and amount of rent you pay and your living arrangements, whether you are single or have a partner and dependents.
