The First Home Owner Grant
As a first-time home owner, you may be eligible for the Victorian or NSW Government’s First Home Owner Grant which will help you get into the property market and be on your way to owning “the great Australian dream”.
The First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) scheme was initially introduced to offset the effect of the GST on home ownership. It is a national scheme funded by the states and territories and administered under their own legislation.
Under the scheme, a one-off grant is payable to first home owners that satisfy all the eligibility criteria.
