Winding down of National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS)

The National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) is an Australian government affordable housing initiative delivered in partnership with state and territory governments. NRAS seeks to address the shortage of affordable rental housing by offering annual financial incentives for up to ten years, to rent dwellings for eligible NRAS tenants at 80% or less of the market value rent.
