Youth Housing

Housing Development to Support the Local Youth

In February 2023, MASP has announced a new social housing project in central Mildura, that will support young people to live independently.

MASP was awarded grant funding to build three new one-bedroom units as part of the Victorian Government’s $50 million Youth Housing Capital Grants program.

These units will be available to young people who are transitioning from out-of-home care, such as foster or residential care, to live in the community.

The units will act as a steppingstone, allowing these people, who are between 16 and 21 years old, to find their feet while benefitting from some crucial support.

This project was put forward as a direct response to the number of young people in our Mallee community who face housing insecurity and big decisions at this time in their lives.

By providing dedicated leaving care housing, and holistic services for ongoing support throughout their transition, we’re aiming to give these young people a good start, and permanently divert young people leaving care from homelessness.

Overall, the project is valued at $935,000 and the units are due to be completed by mid-2024.
