Rent relief scheme

Canberra tenants who struggled to pay their rent during the ACT's lockdown will be able to access money through a new government scheme designed to support people through the summer holiday period.
ACT Attorney-General Shane Rattenbury said renters who had been financially hit by the COVID-19 lockdown and had experienced severe rental stress would be able to access a one-off grant.

These one-off-grants are being administered and distributed by Care and are up to $1000. These grants are for tenants and occupants residing in a private rental or community housing and currently experiencing financial stress. Detailed eligibility criteria for this scheme can be found in the 'rent relief scheme eligibility criteria' fact sheet available below.
