The aim of Yilli Housing is to provide accommodation with affordable rental prices, allowing people to save for a deposit for a home or to enter the mainstream property market. It also provides an avenue for people who are disadvantaged in the mainstream rental market to gain a tenancy.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible for affordable housing, the primary housing applicant must:
not currently own a property
be 18 years or over
be a Northern Territory resident
have never been evicted from Yilli Housing
You are required to fill out the Application Form plus 100 points of identification to be included with your application before it can be processed. Photo identification and current income statement is required in all applications.
Due to the high demand for affordable housing and limited housing stock, we have a long waiting list for people who applied for affordable housing. Only applicants who have completed the application form and the 100 points of ID will be put on the waiting list. It is important to keep your contact number updated, so that we can contact you when a house becomes available. Our waiting list is different from the list that the Territory housing has.
