How to Apply for Community Housing.

To become a tenant you must lodge a Registration of Interest (R O I) form. It is important to note that lodging a R O I form does not guarantee an offer of housing. Available vacancies are allocated to those deemed to have the most urgent housing need and best match the available property. The size of the Community Housing sector is small and tenancies are generally available for a medium to long term so vacancies are limited.

How to Register your Interest.

To register on the Community Housing Customer Register (C H C R) you need to complete a, R O I form which is available via our website or from our office. If you have a Disability S A case worker or social worker they will assist you to register on the C H C R. Tenancy Officers at Access 2 Place or Disability SA Accommodation Placement Panel (APP) will nominate you for vacancies with Access 2 Place.

The C H C R register provides a single entry point for registration and eligibility assessment for all non-government community housing organisations. Registration on the C H C R is not a guarantee of housing. Registering with the C H C R also means that your details will be available to all community housing associations in South Australia, therefore if we are unable to house you, another organisation may be able to assist.

Eligibility Criteria.

Access 2 Place provides housing specifically for individuals and families living with disability. Eligibility may include the following criteria:
  • A person/family living with disability on a low income.
  • A person/family living with disability and receiving a high level of personal support (must be referred by Disability S A).
  • The property is accessible for the unique requirements of the person/family living with disability.

What Happens Next?

Even if you have special circumstances, it can still take a very long time before you are offered a property. This is because there may be other applicants with special circumstances who have already been approved for earlier housing assistance or the properties that become available may not match your circumstances. When a property becomes available, Access 2 Place will undertake a matching process and contact suitable applicants.
