Community Housing Partnership Project

The purpose of the Community Housing Partnership Project (CHPP) is to provide temporary  accommodation to people experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness in Brisbane. More than 1430 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 1 November 2021.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in February 2022.


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 the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy) 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.
