$25K Home Renovation Grant - What you need to know

The team at Balnei & Colina renovations have been renovating homes in Sydney for over 20 years. Our passion comes from creating spaces that change the way people live in their homes. 

Whether it be a kitchen renovation, bathroom renovation, or custom joinery solution we’ve got every room in your home covered and, with the recent announcement from the Australian government regarding the new HomeBuilder scheme, this may be an opportune time to kick-start that renovation you’ve been planning.

With the Australian Government helping to boost the construction sector through the provision of a $25K grant, there has never been a better time to undertake a home renovation project.

Eligible Aussie Home owners will be provided with a grant of $25K to build a new home or renovate an existing one. Housing Minister Michael Sukkar said  - ‘Our advice from the industry and Treasury is this will be the catalyst for many thousands of Australians to make that decision to embark upon a renovation.”

There are some terms however, so the team at Balnei & Colina renovations have prepared a simple guide to the HomeBuilder Scheme. We hope it provides you with the information you need, to take the next step in your home renovation journey.
