Household Resilience Program

The Queensland Government’s Household Resilience Program gives you the opportunity to save up to $11,250 on your new roof.

The program has been run for the last two years, however it is only for a limited time period. This year’s program (Phase 3) has been extended by a further $20 million. As a licensed QBCC contractor, Port City Roofing have been involved with the program since it’s inception and have helped hundreds of North Queenslanders with the application process. This has also resulted in 356 residents gaining access to the Household Resilience Program Grant and having a new roof installed by our team of experienced roofers.

The Household Resilience Program runs for a short period only, so you need to act quickly to ensure your application is submitted early and accurately. The income assessment for 2022 has been increased, so this is good news for residents who may have been over the income levels in previous years.
