Realising more through the Essential Worker Housing Program

At Aware Real Estate, we understand the availability of affordable housing is a growing challenge throughout Australia. Through Aware Super’s Essential Worker Housing Program we are able to provide quality accommodation to vital essential workers at 80% of the market rent. They are able to reduce commute times, live closer to work and to be part of vital, vibrant communities.

We recently heard from a few of our tenants, sharing their own experiences and what this program has personally meant for them and their families.

Aware Real Estate, the property investment platform responsible for the strategic performance and management of Aware Super’s Australian property portfolio, includes 520 apartments across Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth. We are growing our portfolio and currently have 1,600 apartments in different stages of planning and development.

To be eligible for the essential worker program, applicants must:

• be employed as essential workers in a front line service or support role,
• meet the specific Income Eligibility* and Asset Eligibility criteria*, and be able to sustain their tenancy.

*Applicants are required to demonstrate their eligibility which will be assessed on an annual basis
