Applying for housing assistance

Housing assistance in NSW is provided under Housing Pathways. This means that assistance is delivered by FACS Housing and participating community housing providers (together referred to as social housing providers).

You can apply for social housing assistance from any participating social housing provider by using a single application form.

You can apply for housing assistance online, or fill in the application for housing assistance form available for download or as a paper copy from participating social housing providers. You can also use this form to apply for a transfer if you are already a tenant of a social housing provider.

The application for housing assistance form asks important questions about you and other people in your household. The answers you give will help a social housing provider to understand what kind of help you might need and how urgent and/or complex your situation is. Your application will be assessed on the information you give us on this form.

To complete your application for housing assistance, you must:

  • read each question carefully
  • answer all the questions
  • provide document that support your application
