Dear Student,

We request your attention to the following update for which many of you have been awaiting a response.

The Victorian Government has established an $80 million rental assistance fund to provide rent relief payments of up to $3,000 to Victorians experiencing rental hardship due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The one off grant is specifically for tenants living in their primary residence to help them maintain safe, secure and stable accommodation. It is paid directly to the tenant’s agent, lessor or landlord to contribute to the tenant’s rental payments, under their new rental agreement.

To be eligible for the grant you will need to have registered your revised rental agreement with Consumer Affairs Victoria or gone through mediation, have had your income affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), have less than $5,000 in savings and still be paying at least 30% of your income in rent. Lodge your inquiry with Consumer Affairs Victoria
