What is Affordable Housing?

The Affordable Housing program recognises that there is a shortage of housing available to people who are on limited incomes and aims to increase the supply in areas where people want to live, learn, and work.

Common Ground Queensland offers affordable housing at Brisbane Common Ground to tenants who meet the eligibility requirements set out by the Department of Housing and Public Works.  The rent charged to affordable housing tenants is capped at no more than 74.9% of the market value.  Preference is given to tenants who are currently working or studying around the Inner Brisbane area.

The mix of affordable and supportive tenancies creates a diverse building community and opportunities for increased social inclusion.
