How long are the waiting lists associated with Social Housing?
Waiting times vary greatly depending upon the allocation zone that an applicant identifies that they would like to live in, when completing their application form. Additionally, waiting times can vary depending on the number of people that are approved for priority housing, who are placed on the list ahead of people who do not have priority needs.
To increase the chance of being allocated a home as soon as possible, it is recommended that applicants elect to be housed by either Housing NSW or a community housing provider.
