The Victorian Government will invest $33.2 million over two years to extend the private rental assistance program announced in the Family Violence Housing Blitz for disadvantaged Victorians.
It is expected that this will assist around 4,000 people per year.
The Private Rental Assistance Program provides flexible support and practical assistance that is tailored to the needs of each household. The assistance is provided through private rental brokers who help people access or maintain private rental housing. It is short-term in nature, in preference to more intense interventions, such as crisis and transitional housing.
