First home owner grant

Mr Howard РI am also pleased to see that the Andrews government is making it easier for young people in regional Victoria to build and live in their own community. Since Labor doubled the first home owner grant in regional Victoria, we have seen almost three times as many people receive the grant. Across Ballarat, Moorabool and Golden Plains, 138 grants have been awarded to first home buyers. This means more young people in my electorate have achieved their dream of owning their own home. I am certainly very excited about these great projects that the Andrews government is supporting.
