What is it?
Affordable housing is housing which is rented to people earning very low to moderate incomes. Affordable housing is rented to eligible tenants at no more than 80% of the market rent for a property or 30% of a household’s income. The reduction in rental cost is designed to ensure tenants can afford other basic living costs such as food, clothing, medical care and education.
When BlueCHP has a vacancy in one of our affordable housing properties we will advertise its availability on our website and through other forms of digital media.
To be eligible to rent a BlueCHP affordable housing property you must meet the following criteria:
- Be an Australia citizen or have permanent residency
- Be a NSW resident
- Be able to establish your identity
- Be able to sustain a tenancy
- Not own any assets which could be used to solve your housing need
- Meet the National Rental Affordability Scheme household income eligibility limits.
