Community & Public Housing
Community housing is run by private companies and public housing is run by the government. In some regions, both are administered by the public housing office, so that is always your first port of call. Find out if an application for public housing also covers community housing. In some cases you may need to apply privately for each community housing option as well as the public housing option.
