Affordable rental housing is for people with incomes that are very low, low or moderate. It’s quite a range, but then there are a wide variety of people who can access affordable rental housing.
The rent for these affordable studios, units and houses will be at least 20% less than market rent. For example, if the market rent is $500 a week, then the affordable rental amount would be $400 a week. If you are eligible for affordable housing, this can make a big difference to your weekly budget.
Most affordable rental housing is managed by not-for-profit community housing providers. Each property has its own eligibility criteria, and the providers assess applications like yours against these criteria when they are determining eligibility.
If you are keen on applying for any of this kind of properties, you can rest assure that your individual circumstances will be assessed with each application. More information on affordable rental housing can be found at: www.facs.nsw.gov.au/
