Community Housing Partnership Project

The purpose of the Community Housing Partnership Project (CHPP) is to provide crisis and transitional accommodation to people experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness in Brisbane. More than 1300 people have been accommodated in CHPP properties since 2003.

The project utilises properties either resumed or held by Council for future infrastructure works, and transfers the management of these properties to eligible CHPP housing providers.

Council provides an opportunity for social housing providers across Brisbane to apply to be a CHPP housing provider through an expression of interest process every three years. 

Current expression of interest

Council is seeking expressions of interest from eligible organisations to become a CHPP housing provider.

Applications for the expression of interest are now open and will close on Monday 10 December 2018.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by mid May 2019.


To be eligible as a CHPP housing provider, organisations must be a registered provider under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (as required by Department of Housing and Public Works) or be an Ancillary provider receiving funding to provide Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS).

How to apply

Please read the CHPP expression of interest guidelines prior to preparing your application.

To apply, submit your application online.

The online application system allows you to save, develop and print out your application before you submit it.
