Housing Pathways

Allocation Zone Locator

An allocation zone is a group of areas or towns where social housing is available. There are 245 allocation zones across NSW. When you apply for social housing you are asked to choose an area, suburb or town where you would prefer to live.

We then check to see which allocation zone your selection is in and, if you are eligible for housing, we list you on the NSW Housing Register for offers of housing in this allocation zone. Our aim is to house people where they would prefer to live but we can't guarantee specific locations. The location of the property we offer you when it's your turn to be housed will depend on where the next vacancy occurs that matches the type of housing you need within the allocation zone you have selected. This means that we might offer you housing in any of the suburbs or towns that are grouped into the allocation zone you are approved for.

If you'd like help choosing a location, talk to your local Housing NSW office or community housing provider participating in Housing Pathways.
