Applying for the
First Home Owner Grant


In most cases

the lenders are able to act as agents for the Revenue Office.


This allows the First Home Owner Grant funds

to be available at settlement or at the first progress payment if you are building your home.


If you apply directly to the Revenue Office,

funds will not be available until after settlement or completion of the home if you are building.
