Private Rental Assistance Program

The Private Rental Assistance Program is intended to prevent or end homelessness and housing crisis by:

  • rapidly rehousing people capable of sustaining private rental after initial support
  • supporting at-risk households to sustain affordable and appropriate housing in the private rental market
  • assisting people to move to independence in the private rental market when they currently live in crisis, transitional or social housing.

Private rental assistance is provided to households who are able to sustain private rental housing with limited support and:

  • are at risk of losing their current tenancy, for example, due to a personal crisis, short term financial crisis, rent arrears, tenancy dispute etc.
  • are currently homeless but can be rapidly and sustainably housed in the private rental market with short term assistance.
  • could sustain affordable and appropriate housing in the private rental market, but need assistance with the transition from crisis, transitional or social housing.

Each client will be assessed individually, with an emphasis on identifying personal or financial capabilities that can be enhanced to improve their capacity to sustain appropriate and affordable housing in the private rental market and who:

  • present at access points with a recent private rental history
  • live in marginal private rental housing such as rooming houses or caravan parks who can afford and sustain private rental
  • are on the Victorian Housing Register and can afford and sustain private rental
  • live in social housing or transitional housing and are working and can afford to sustain private rental.

If you live in the eastern region of Melbourne call our Initial Assessment and Planning team on (03) 9871 8700 and discuss your situation with a worker.
