The government's home builders grants are being hailed as a massive win for regional towns.

Locals can now apply for $25,000 grants for new homes, or to help substantially renovate existing properties.

Michael Randall from Bundy Homes said many locals will be keen to take advantage of the program.

"It is almost like this grant has been pitched at the people of Bundaberg," Mr Randall said.

"Because of the means testing for incomes, because of the capping of qualification figures - it is just wonderful news for the region."
