Welcome to the Housing Opportunities Portal’s online submission service, powered by SmartyGrants.

Click here to view the Terms and Conditions.

You will be asked to acknowledge that you have read and understood the Terms and Conditions and completed the screening questions as part of your submission.

If you complete the screening questions and your submission is ineligible for consideration, there is no need to lodge the form.

You can submit multiple ideas however each submission must only cover one concept. If you would like to propose more than one idea, you will need to submit separate submissions for each one.

You can complete and move between sections of the submission form. Please ensure you save as you go.

On every page of the submission form you will find a Navigation box on the right hand side of your screen. Click the relevant section link to jump directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the submission form.


If you wish to leave a partially completed submission, press 'save and close' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any submissions you have started or lodged. You can reopen your draft submission and start where you left off.

You can also download any submission, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download PDF' button located at the bottom of the last page of the submission form.


You will find a ‘Review and Submit’ button at the bottom of the Navigation box. You will need to review your submission before you can lodge it.

Once you have reviewed your submission, you can lodge it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top or bottom of the screen or on the Navigation box. You will not be able to lodge your submission until all the mandatory questions are completed and there are no validation errors (highlighted in red).

Once you have lodged your submission, no further editing is possible.

When you lodge your submission, you will receive a confirmation email with a copy of your lodged submission attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume your submission has NOT been lodged.

Hint: Also check the email hasn’t landed in your spam or junk email folder.

If you wish to edit or rescind your lodged submission, you will need to contact housingportal@housing.qld.gov.au and quote your Submission ID.
