South Australia Government Residential Rental Grant Scheme


The State Government recently made the Residential Rental Grant Scheme available to eligible temporary visa holders including international students.

A once-off rental grant of up to $1,000 is available for residential landlords who reduce the rent of a tenant experiencing rental hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To be considered as being in rental hardship, a residential tenant must be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, have less than $5,000 in savings and pay more than 30% of their current income in rent.

If you are in private rental accommodation and meet the eligibility criteria, they can apply for the grant.
