Initial eligibility for affordable housing mostly depends on household income, which must be within limits set by the NSW and/or Commonwealth Governments.

Other factors may also be considered when assessing eligibility, including:

  • Australian citizenship or permanent residency
  • whether the household would be able to secure suitable or adequate housing in the private rental market
  • whether the household owns any assets (e.g. a property) which they could be reasonably expected to use to solve their housing need
