The National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) is a Federal Government initiative supported by the Queensland Government, which aims to deliver 50,000 new properties across Australia by 2012.
Sunshine Coast Housing organisation, Coast2Bay, are delivering new housing stock under this scheme as an alternative to social housing, and will tenant these brand new properties at 25% below market rent.
Coast2Bay can be contacted on (07) 5451 2900 or 1300 796 716 . The Coast2Bay NRAS team can be emailed at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Their office hours are Mon, Tues, Thur, Friday: 9am-4pm. Wednesday: 2pm – 4pm
When Coast2Bay applied to the Federal Government to build these homes, they dedicated a percentage of the proposed housing to meet the needs of our Indigenous community.
This is a great opportunity to secure good quality, long term, affordable housing.
