Community Housing is different from Public Housing:
Ecclesia Housing is a faith-based, not-for-profit charity. We are accountable to government for how we house our tenants.
We are a local provider with strong relationships with other local services.
We are a Registered Community Housing Provider which means we meet the highest standards of tenant services, financial management and governance to ensure that our tenants get an excellent service.
Ecclesia Housing may be for you if you fit any of the following categories:
- single people
- young people
- older people
- people with special needs
- Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders
- people of non-English-speaking backgrounds
There is a process to apply for community housing in NSW. This is called Housing Pathways. Under Housing Pathways, all applicants will be placed on a common housing register once the eligibility requirements are met.
You need to be eligible for social housing. This means your income and other matters will be assessed before you are accepted on the Common Housing Register under Housing Pathways.
Our staff can assist you with your application.
If you have a slightly higher income, you may be eligible for Affordable Housing. This is separate to the Common Housing Register, and you need to ask our staff for information on Affordable housing.
What does it cost?
Under Housing Pathways your rent will be consistent with Public Housing policies. Under Affordable Housing your rent will be approximately 75% - 80% of market rent.
In most cases your rent will be less than in the private market.
