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.
