Your rent is calculated based on your household's gross assessable income plus your entitlement to Commonwealth Rent Assistance (CRA).

 

The assessment rates for each type of income are set by the NSW Government and vary for different household members. 


100% of Commonwealth Rent Assistance entitlement is included in rent assessments.
