Rental Assistance Options

The Western Australia Government, Federal Government and non-government organisations provide several types of rental housing products to Western Australians on a low to moderate income who have a housing need. 

These products come in the form of rental housing options, rental assistance, and information on tenant rights. Eligibility criteria vary from product to product.


Contact your local Department of Communities Housing Office to complete a Housing Options Assessment​ which will provide information about the housing assistance options you may be eligible for based on your current household circumstances.​
