National Rental Affordability Scheme

The National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) is a Commonwealth government scheme.  It helps low and moderate income households rent private accommodation at 80% of the market rent.  

If you register your interest in community housing, you will automatically be considered for any NRAS properties managed by community housing providers.

NRAS Investors can purchase NRAS properties from an approved provider but funding is no longer available for new NRAS properties.

NRAS potential and existing tenants must meet eligibility criteria and be assessed.

More information about the scheme is available on the Australian government website.
