National Rental Affordability Scheme - Performance Reporting
The National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) is an Australian Government initiative, working in partnership with the states and territories, to stimulate the supply of new affordable rental dwellings. Successful NRAS applicants are eligible to receive a National Rental Incentive, drawing together Commonwealth and state or territory contributions for each approved dwelling where they are rented to eligible low and moderate income households at a rate that is at least 20 per cent below the prevailing market rates.
The Department has prepared this report for the purpose of disseminating information on NRAS free of charge for the benefit of the public. It draws on information and data provided by a variety of individuals and organisations, including from Approved Participants of the NRAS.
Note that responsibility for NRAS was previously with the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (SEWPAC).
This report is made available for general information, and is subject to regular revision and updates.
