Rental Rebate Manual

The purpose of the Rental Rebate manual is to outline the processes by which the Department of Human Services (the department) manages the rental rebate system.

The Director of Housing accepts from eligible tenants a reduced rent on the basis of the departrment's rental rebate policy. The difference between the rent charged to a public housing tenant and the market rent  of their property is known as the rental rebate.

The rental rebate policy is aimed at reducing the disparity in the financial assistance given to public and private renters while ensuring rents continue to be set at affordable levels and sufficient rent revenue is received by the department to cover costs not met by government funding.
