Each private rental assistance option has different eligibility requirements. There are some exceptions, but generally you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and a resident of New South Wales to be eligible.

Most options offer short-term assistance to clients who may:

  • be having difficulty entering the private rental market
  • have complex needs
  • have low income
  • be homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • be experiencing a crisis

For more information on the types of help available and their eligibility requirements, see help renting in the private market.
