Round 5 of the NRAS call for applications is now closed.
How are applications for Round 5 assessed?
Applications are assessed by representatives of the Australian Government and, where relevant, the state or territory government where the proposed dwellings will be located. External consultants with technical expertise may also be asked to provide reports for consideration in the assessment process.
Applications are assessed against the criteria set out in Set 6, Schedule 1 of the National Rental Affordability Scheme Regulations 2008.
The Australian Government uses an Assessment Tool to assess applications.
