Eligibility for affordable housing mostly depends on your household income, which must be within the maximum limits set by the NSW and/or Australian governments. 

Income levels are assessed against gross income limits according to the household composition. 

A household’s gross income for the 12 months prior to commencement of a lease must be equal to or less than the relevant income limits for the household's composition.


The maximum household income limits are indexed and are reviewed every year.
