Approximately two weeks.

Community Housing tenants have their ongoing eligibility assessed every 12 months.

After your Application for Social Housing is assessed and you’re deemed eligible, you will be asked about any specific features you or your household members need.

Crisis accommodation is short-term supported accommodation for a duration of identified need. Crisis accommodation is not a long-term housing outcome.

Crisis accommodation managed by Regional Housing includes the allocation of a case manager who will provide case management support, including home visit appointments, actively facilitating tenants identifying barriers and working towards goals to support stabilising circumstances and transitioning to independent accommodation as soon as practical. Non-engagement with the case management process could result in a review of a tenant’s crisis accommodation duration of need.

You can submit your Application for Social Housing at your nearest Housing Service Centre or Courthouse.
