North Dennington Housing Affordability Program

The North Dennington Housing Affordability Program is an innovative joint initiative between Warrnambool City Council and the Federal Government.  

The objectives of the Program are to invest in local infrastructure projects that support an increase in the number of homes for sale that are affordable for working families on ordinary incomes, in communities that are experiencing positive jobs and population growth that need more homes to be built.

The Program has two parts: the first was the construction of Coghlans Rd, a key east-west connecting road through one of our City's key residential growth areas;  and the second is to provide grants to eligible persons building a new house in the North Dennington Residential Development Area.

The $2.5 million construction of Coghlans Rd was completed in April 2014.  The grants program  which has attracted considerable interest since its launch in May 2013, provides grants of up to $20,000 to eligible prospective home owners seeking to build a new home in North Dennington.

To be eligible for the grant, applicants must meet a number of criteria, including gross household income limits.  Please refer to the Guidelines and Application Form. 

The housing affordability program ends at the end of June 2017.

Applicants wishing to apply for the program must include signed building contracts with their applications.
