Affordable Home Purchase

Be part of the ACT Government’s
Affordable Home Purchase scheme

Affordable Dwellings MapA mix of townhouses, terraces, apartments and houses are planned to be built as part of the ACT Government’s Affordable Home Purchase scheme. The scheme aims to provide assistance to lower income households by providing homes for purchase at affordable rates.

If you are interested and meet the eligibility criteria, please register your interest on the Affordable Home Purchase database. Eligible homebuyers will have the opportunity of being included in ballots for an affordable dwelling in those developments that have an affordable dwelling requirement.

Price thresholds apply to affordable homes based on the net living area and are indexed annually.
