There are two types of rental accommodation provided by BHC that meet a range of household incomes and affordability.
1. AFFORDABLE HOUSING RENTAL ACCOMMODATION
We aim to provide accommodation that is affordable, spacious, secure, close to amenities and public transport and located within close proximity to the CBD and other suburban hubs.
If you are on a low income and are registered with the Queensland Government Department of Housing & Public Works Social Housing Waitlist, you may be eligible for one of BHC’s affordable homes. If you are not currently registered on the Social Housing Waitlist, check your eligibility here.
Once you are eligible, register your interest for BHC’s Affordable Rental Accommodation here.
2. NATIONAL RENTAL AFFORDABILITY SCHEME (NRAS) ACCOMMODATION
BHC’s National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) properties are part of the Australian and State Government’s initiative to provide new properties at discounted rents to low to moderate income earners.
The scheme was introduced in 2008 to help alleviate the rental crisis facing Middle Australia. BHC has welcomed the opportunity to be part of this initiative and in 2010 we completed our first NRAS homes at Masters Street in Newstead.
