Who can apply for housing with City West Housing
You can apply to be housed with City West Housing if you meet all of the following criteria.
Your gross household income (ie before tax) must fall within one of the following bands. Note, these income bands are reviewed annually, effective 1 July each year.
Applicants will be provided with up-to-date information at the time of application and as requested. As at July 2014:
|Band||Total Household Income|
|Two||$33,107 to $55,436|
|Three||$55,437 to $94,274|
Please note that due to having a high proportion of tenants in our band one income group (under $33,106), no further applications are being processed from this income band.
In line with our company objectives and to ensure we have a reasonably equal balance of the three eligible income groups, only applications from households earning between $33,107 and $94,274 will be processed.
