Scope:Help on this term

The scope of the Community housing waiting list cluster is waitlist applicants for Community housing tenancy (rental) units under management of a community housing organisation. This excludes applicants for units where the tenancy management function is managed under:

  • Public Rental Housing; or
  • Aboriginal Rental Housing Program state/territory owned and managed Indigenous housing.

Waitlist applicants are those households that have applied for rental housing and have been deemed eligible but have not received the assistance they applied for. This includes current housing tenants who are applicants for assistance different from what they currently receive.

In addition waitlist applicants are only in scope if the service provider organisation waitlist is not part of a consolidated jurisdiction waiting list. That is, it is conditional on the code value for Service provider organisation—common waitlist indicator, yes/no code N, being 2 (“No”).
