Am I eligible for affordable rental housing?

Eligibility for affordable housing mostly depends on your household income, which must be within the maximum limits set by the NSW and/or Australian Governments (see How much income can I earn ?).

Other eligibility criteria may include:

  • whether you are a citizen or permanent resident of Australia
  • whether your household would be able to find suitable or adequate housing in the private rental market
  • whether you own any assets (eg a property) which you could use to solve your housing need
  • whether you can show that you are able to maintain a successful tenancy.

Specific criteria may vary between CHPs, so you will need to check when you contact an affordable housing manager.
