To be eligible for community housing, customers must meet the basic eligibility criteria before they can be registered on the Community Housing Customer Register.

To pass the base eligibility criteria people need to:

  • be a resident of South Australia
  • not be a homeowner
  • have an independent income

Exceptions to these criteria may apply in extenuating circumstances. Registrants must be able to show proof of income and identification.

Additional criteria may also apply if you are registering interest in community housing with a housing co-op.

Multiple household groups

If there’s more than one household group in your registration of interest, such as a couple with a child and a financially independent elderly parent, both households need to be eligible or have special circumstances.
