DHOAS eligibility is changing...

A number of changes to the Defence Home Ownership Assistance Scheme Act 2008 have been approved by the Federal Government.

These changes, which take effect from 1 January 2023, include the removal the five year deadline for separated veterans to apply for their final subsidy certificate and reduced minimum service thresholds for each of the DHOAS subsidy tiers.
