Low cost housing options
There can be many reasons why renting a home in the private rental market may be financially challenging.
There are several options for those looking to spend less on rent.
Depending on your personal circumstances, you may be eligible to apply for:
- social housing – secure and affordable rental housing for people on low incomes
- affordable housing – for people on very low to moderate incomes
- low cost and culturally appropriate housing – for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people
There can be long waiting lists, so it's important to apply as early as possible.
