WA renters advocacy group welcomes rent relief package
The executive manager of Tenancy WA has welcomed the State Government’s package to provide assistance to tenants and landlords – as they ride out the coronavirus downturn.
$30 million in grants will be made available from May 1 – providing up to two thousand dollars in rent for tenants – paid directly to the landlord.
To qualify – renters need less than $10,000 in their accounts – and be spending at least 25 percent of available income on rent.
Tenancy WA’s Carmen Acosta told Gareth Parker on Mornings it’s a favourable package.
