People in Australia who are on low to moderate incomes can access housing from what is broadly known as Social Housing.
To access Social Housing you must be able to satisfy eligibility criteria set by the relevant state or territory via an application process. To see if you are eligible, please review the relevant state/territory department resources below;
Both NSW & the ACT have their own housing register and subsequent waiting listing. When applying for Social Housing you can choose a preference to receive offers for housing from Public Housing, Community Housing providers or both.
Public Housing is Social Housing when owned/managed by Housing NSW or Housing ACT. Community Housing is Social Housing that is owned/managed by a community housing provider such as Argyle.
