Media release May 2015
More young Tasmanians wanting to realise the dream of building their first home can now, with a $20,000 grant made possible because of the state’s growing economy and sustainable Budget position.
The Hodgman Liberal Government’s 2016-17 Budget will see the First Home Owners Grant, which applies to the construction of new homes, doubled to $20,000 until 30 June 2017.
This initiative is expected to generate around $175 million worth of building activity across the State.
“History shows that the first home builders market is responsible to this type of stimulus,” Mr Gutwein said.
“Our economy is growing at its fastest rate in six years, business confidence is among the highest in the country, the unemployment rate is down, and the budget will be in surplus for the first time in seven years.
“But there is still more that can be done and that is why the Government is taking action to encourage more investment in the building sector.
“Importantly, the extra grant will be backdated to January 2016 so that Tasmanians who have already applied and qualified for the $10,000 grant can qualify for the full $20,000.
“We want the confidence we are seeing in the construction sector continue, and that’s why we are supporting the sector through the support for first home builders, fixing the planning system and the headworks holiday that has slashed the cost of investing.”
Building and Construction Minister Adam Brooks said the grant would generate millions of dollars of work for Tasmanian builders, engineers, bricklayers, electricians and retailers.
“This is a significant boom for the sector, which employs thousands of Tasmanians and supports thousands more indirectly,” Mr Brooks said.
“The Government has been listening to the building sector throughout Tasmania and heard the feedback: outside of Hobart, conditions are not as buoyant as in the capital.
“This initiative will act as a stimulus, not only for the building sector, but much more broadly through the economy for housing-related spending, such as retail.
“Since the election in March 2014, the value of building work done in Tasmania has increased by 25 per cent.”
