Tasmanians are being encouraged to come forward and apply for the state government's $10,000 ancillary dwelling grants program.
Under the program, homeowners can put the $10,000 toward the construction of an ancillary dwelling - colloquially known as a granny flat - on their existing property.
Half of the $10,000 will be made available during construction and the other half will be handed out after the new dwelling has been leased to a renter.
The staggered payment is to help ensure any new builds are utilised as rentals - which they must remain as for at least two years - rather than used as short-term holiday stays.
About 150 grants have already been approved, but there is room in the $2.5 million budget for another 100 more.
