The Queensland government has boosted the First Home Owners’ Grant (formerly known as the Great Start Grant) by $5,000, giving a one-off payment of $20,000 to all those who move into their first new home.
This boost kicked off on July 1, 2016 and will expire on June 30, 2017.
The grant explained
The Queensland First Home Owners' Grant allows those buying or building a new home access to a lump sum, one-off, payment from the State Government.
This means if you (and your partner) are buying your very first home, either off-the-plan or building it yourself, you are entitled to the payment.
