ACROSS THE STATE PROVIDING SAFE, STABLE AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR MORE THAN 4,000 SOUTH AUSTRALIANS.
Options & Eligibility
We provide a range of sustainable housing options for South Australians.
This includes houses allocated for those on low to moderate incomes and people with barriers to long term housing.
Eligibility criteria for our housing options depends on a range of factors including who owns the property (because we do not own all the properties we manage as a landlord). We cater for people with a range of special needs. Some of the houses we manage can only be occupied by people with special support needs who are supported by specific organisations.
Also known as Community Housing, social housing is a type of income-based rental housing. To be considered for this type of housing, applicants must:

Social housing for people with specific support needs
We manage a number of Supported Social Housing properties which are reserved for people with specific support needs such as for Mental Health. Tenants for these specific properties are nominated by the organisation that provides that specific support. Tenants must be actively engaged with their respective support service.
We also manage housing for people who have difficulty getting into the private housing market, but who may not otherwise meet the eligibility requirements for social housing.
Rent is based on a percentage of market rental rates, and household income eligibility limits apply.
Some of our housing is subject to the National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS). If you wish to be eligible for NRAS Housing, the household income eligibility limits that apply are set by the Australian Department of Social Services.
