Housing options

The State Government, through the Department of Communities (Communities), provides a range of support to people with various housing needs. This includes rental assistance, public housing, financial support to becoming a homeowner and issues related to urgent homelessness.

If you need to relocate to a private rental, you may be eligible for an interest free Bond Assistance Loan from the Communities to overcome the upfront cost of renting in the private market. This is an interest free loan for bond assistance and up to two weeks rent in advance.

For more information on the range of supports available and related eligibility requirements, visit the Housing Options page on the Communities’ website. Should you wish to lodge an application for public housing, please contact your local Housing Office to complete a Housing Options Assessment which will provide information about the housing assistance options you may be eligible for based on your current household circumstances.
