National Rental Affordability Scheme - Round 5 closed
Round 5 of the NRAS call for applications is now closed.
How will applications for Round 5 be assessed?
Applications will be 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 that will be considered in the assessment process.
Applications will be assessed against the criteria set out in Set 6, Schedule 1 to the National Rental Affordability Scheme Regulations 2008.
The Australian Government will use an Assessment Tool to assess applications.
