Colony Assistance $ervice for Housing - CA$H
CA$H provides help in the form of one-off financial assistance to people on low to moderate incomes to pay a bond or rental arrears for their private rental tenancy.
The Private Rental Support Scheme (PRSS) is delivered by Colony Assistance $ervice for Housing (CA$H). Additionally, we provide information, advocacy and referrals to other C47 programs, non-government and government agencies.
This program funded by the Tasmanian and Australian Governments.
- I was so surprised that I was entitled to so much help. I have never had to ask for financial help before and was so pleased. Without their help there is no way I would have been able to scrape together the bond, in order to be able to find somewhere to live.
- I found the process easy, as all staff are friendly and willing to help if needed.
- No judgment of me was made; waiting time was short. I was not hurried. Thank you so very much.
- I couldn’t have been treated any better; I have nothing bad to say, only good. I will never be able to repay Colony 47 staff for their kindness.
