Private Rental Assistance

Finding an affordable private rental home is difficult for many Tasmanians. 

The Tasmanian Government provides three programs to help make it easier to find and stay in a private rental home:

  1. Private Rental Assistance
  2. Private Rental Incentives and
  3. Family Violence Rapid Rehousing.

Private Rental Assistance helps eligible people on low incomes to cover the cost of paying their rent, paying a bond or moving costs in the private rental market.

Private Rental Incentives helps by making more homes available and affordable to eligible people on low incomes.

Family Violence Rapid Rehousing helps by making safe homes available and affordable to eligible persons impacted by family violence.

You can apply for these three programs through Housing Connect.
