National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS)
NRAS is a partnership between the Australian Government and the States and Territories to invest in affordable rental housing.
NRAS was implemented to address the shortage of affordable rental housing in the community. Giving businesses and community organisations the opportunity to build and then rent dwellings to low and moderate income households at a rate that is at least 20 per cent below the market value rent.
NRAS rental homes are available to low and moderate income Australians.
The current household income eligibility limits are:
|1st Adult – sole parent||$69,852|
