The Department of Family and Community Services will offer an amnesty for any FACS Housing or Aboriginal Housing tenant that would like to voluntarily report any undisclosed income, financial assets or property ownership.
The amnesty will be held from 27 April 2017 – 11 June 2017.
If you contact the Housing Contact Centre with information about new sources of income, financial assets or property owned in your name during this time period you will be protected from prosecution.
If you know someone living in public housing or Aboriginal Housing and they are not declaring their correct income, they own a property or if you believe someone is living with them that FACS is not aware of, you can make a report to FACS at anytime on 1800 422 322.
We’ll be providing more information about the upcoming amnesty shortly. If you have any questions in the meantime, please call the Housing Contact Centre.
