Registered NDIS Provider

I'm Looking for a Home


We provide three main types of housing:

  • social rentals
  • affordable rentals
  • transitional rentals.

 

Social housing is secure and affordable rental housing for people on low incomes with housing needs. Public housing is managed by DCJ while community housing is managed by non-government organisations such as Hume.

We manage tenancies in accordance with the Residential Tenancies Act 2010.

To be eligible for social housing, you must:

  • be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident
  • live in New South Wales
  • be able to provide ID (i.e. a drivers license or passport)
  • have a household income within set limits
  • not own property that could help you with your housing needs
  • be able to keep paying your rent and looking after your home with or without help
  • be at least 18 years old (usually)

To apply for social housing, you need to register on the DCJ website.

There is a waitlist for social housing. You can look at the waitlist's expected waiting times here.

 

Affordable rentals are for people earning low to moderate incomes who are finding it difficult to pay private market rent.

Affordable rentals offer discounted rents (on average, 20% less than market rent).

To be eligible for affordable rentals, you must:

  • be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident
  • live in New South Wales
  • be able to provide ID (i.e. drivers license or passport)
  • have a household income within set limits
  • not own property that could help you with your housing needs

Household income limits for affordable rentals depend on the number of adults and children living in your home:

The Housing independence Program (HIP) is a short-term transitional housing rental program to provide people without a home stable housing to support future tenancy success.

Customers are offered on a three-month lease to start, and there is a maximum stay of 12 months.

The program supports customers to build a stable rental history and enable them to sustain a tenancy.

To be eligible for HIP, you must:

  • Be homeless or about to become homeless
  • Have at least one person in your household aged 18 or over
  • Agree to follow the policies and procedure of the program
  • Agree to work with Hume employees and other support organisations
