    I think the give away is in the name of the scheme: NATIONAL rental affordability scheme.

    Default National Rental Affordability Scheme

    There was no need to be smart about it. As I said as far as I know. Now I know it is in other states.

    Default National Rental Affordability Scheme

    The government wastes money in many areas, however I don't think affordable housing schemes are one of them. Geez.

    OP - I am approved for NRAS. It's the only way I will ever be able to move out of my sister's place and rent a house for my children and I. Rentals where I live are very pricey (even small units), but this scheme means I can secure a property for about $350-$380 a week. Minus rent assistance, it will be about $300 per week...maybe a bit more. Still pushing it, but it's doable.

    I applied online. The process was a cinch.

    Sorry don't get me wrong I think for low income earners it's a great thing but for someone like us (looking at the links provided) I can't believe we would be eligible

    Eta sorry we would only be eligible if we had of signed up last financial year as it says it covers up to 25% above your income. I think the threshold is too high.

    I was just pointing it out actually. Maybe you weren't aware of what it was called?
    Never my intention to be smart but whatever.. Sorry if you were offended.
