Pathways out of Homelessness Grant Program

On 15 June 2022, the Lord Mayor announced further funding for the Pathways out of Homelessness Grant Program due to the considerable benefit and positive impact achieved in supporting individuals experiencing homelessness and sustaining tenancies, under the previous 2019-2022 Pathways out of Homelessness Grant Program.

The 2022-2025 Pathways out of Homelessness Grant Program will provide $3 million over three years to bolster sector capacity, collaboration and innovation in supporting Brisbane residents at risk or experiencing homelessness.


The program provides multi-year funding for up to three years to Brisbane-based organisations to bolster sector capacity, collaboration, innovation and demonstrated outcomes in supporting Brisbane residents experiencing or at risk of homelessness to achieve sustainable tenancies. The program will also fund enhancements to existing programs that support pathways out of homelessness.


For the Pathways out of Homelessness Grant you can apply for grant funding up to a total of $450,000 payable as agreed milestone outcomes, for up to three years.
