The States of Guernsey has decided to no longer offer first time buyer grants and close its housing loan scheme.
It was one of the changes in a report setting out the Housing Department's aims for the future, which was approved by the States.
The report covered funding, control of property among departments and changes to the department's mandate.
During the debate on the report it was decided the provision of emergency housing would be further investigated.
Housing Minister Dave Jones told the States the four remaining families living at the Grand Bouet Estate have now moved out and the final phase of demolition of the 148 States houses can go ahead.
The estate is due to be replaced by a new housing development.
Deputy Jones said no alternative sites were available and his department had no choice but to push on with the redevelopment.
A motion put forward by Deputy Barry Brehaut to allow for more emergency accommodation to be put aside in the plans was defeated by a tied vote of 22-22.
Deputy Jones said due to the closeness of the vote his department would re-examine the issue.
