  2. Upload your supporting documents

    Applications for the Australian HomeBuilder Grant closed at midnight on Wednesday 14 April 2021.

    However, applicants who had started their application in the online portal prior to the closing date, can continue their application, including uploading their supporting documents, as they become available. All supporting documents must be uploaded by no later than 30 April 2023.

    When you are uploading your supporting documents, you should carefully read the supporting document checklist in the online portal, checking that you have uploaded all the required documents.
