Community housing is a type of social housing that provides secure, affordable, long-term rental accommodation for individuals and families living on low to moderate incomes.
Our properties are managed on behalf of Housing NSW, rented through the private rental market or are housing that we own.
To be eligible for community housing, you must meet the following criteria:
You can apply for all types of social housing using an Application for Housing Assistance. You can lodge your application with any social housing provider in NSW, either in person or by mail. This includes all branch offices of Housing Plus. You can also submit an Application for Housing Assistance online or by calling the Housing Contact Centre on 1800 422 322 between 9am-5pm weekdays. You will need your Medicare card and your Centrelink details when you call.

If your application is approved, you will be placed on a waiting list that is accessible by all social housing providers.
The time you wait will depend on:
You will have two days from receiving the offer to inspect the property, decide if it suits your needs and accept the property.
If you do not respond within two days, we will assume you are not interested and the property will be offered to another applicant.
You will be given up to two reasonable offers of suitable housing. If you do not accept these reasonable offers, your name may be removed from the waiting list.
