I think the give away is in the name of the scheme: 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.
Wow not sure how I feel about this scheme! And the government wonders where all it's money is going too, this and rent assistance
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.
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.
