Brisbane City Council's Housing Support Program provides funding to community organisations for projects or services that respond to the housing and social needs of homeless people, or those living in social housing.

Funding is available to develop and improve programs and facilities for homeless people and those in social housing in the inner north of Brisbane, including:
