National Rental Assistance Scheme: How To Apply Successfully

The National Rental Assistance Scheme was established by The Government of Ghana in 2023 to address and correct Rent Advance problem that has placed an undue financial burden on the people of Ghana for far too long.

The pilot phase will cover Greater Accra, Ashanti, Western, Eastern, Bono East, and Northern regions.




Government through the Ministry of Works and Housing on January 31, 2023, launched the National Rental Assistance Scheme with a GH¢30 million commitment under a pilot phase.

Under the scheme, rent payment advances will be made for applicants who are either in the process of renewing, renting a room/apartment or a complete house.


Government adds that the scheme will provide low-interest loans to eligible Ghanaians to enable them to pay rent advances, which will be repaid on a monthly basis to match the tenure of the rent.


The long term vision of the scheme is completely eliminate the undue burden that advance rent places on the Ghanaian renter.



Why Was The National Rental Assistance Scheme Established?

• Ghanaians have been burdened with payment of Rent Advances for far too long. Landlords and property owners have demanded advance payments of rent in excess of 3 years from potential renters.

• This undue burden has been partly due to shortage of affordable housing as both government and private developers have been unable to construct enough of these type of housing to accommodate the growth and demand for these types of housing needs.

• It is currently estimated that there exists a deficit of about 5 million rooms in Ghana as of December 2023; assuming each room is shared by 2 occupants. And this deficit is expected to get worse as the population grows and rural-urban migration continues.



Based on these factors, National Rental Assistance Scheme was formed to offer rent relief to the ordinary Ghanaian renter; making it possible for rent payments to be made on monthly basis as rent is mostly paid throughout the world.
