The WA Government, Australian Government and non-government organisations provide several types of housing products to Western Australians who have a housing need and receive a low to moderate income.
These products include rental housing options, rental assistance, and information on tenant rights. Eligibility criteria varies from product to product.
To receive advice on your options based on your current household circumstances, and to find out what products you may be eligible for, contact your local Department of Communities (Communities) Housing office to complete a Housing Options Assessment.
For information about the Housing Options Assessment, and to download the Assessment form, please visit the Housing Options Assessment webpage.
In addition to providing public housing in metropolitan and country areas of Western Australia, Communities also provides assistance to people with various other housing needs. This may include rental assistance, becoming a homeowner and issues related to homelessness.
If you are experiencing homelessness or extenuating circumstances, please refer to the Homelessness services webpage.
