Housing Now

"Housing NOW" is a new initiative that allows eligible social housing applicants the opportunity to choose their new home from a range of properties ready for immediate allocation.

Occasionally, properties become available because they are not suitable for applicants next on the list with special needs. Housing NOW enables social housing applicants who are further down the list to view these properties. They can do this by lodging an Expression of Interest with Housing ACT.
