The state government has paid out almost $800,000 in support for landlords and tenants this month.
The government announced earlier this month it would extend its rent relief fund for tenants, allowing those who had already accessed it a second chance of receiving money.
The fund allows a tenant to access a months' worth of rental payments or $2000 - whichever is the lesser amount.

Building Minister Elise Archer told Parliament on Tuesday 868 applications from 1293 individuals to the fund had been received.
"Of these applications, 837 individuals have progressed for final assessment and have been paid over $716,605," she said.
"A further 28 individuals were approved to be paid on the 23rd of September."
The government on September 4 created a fund for landlords who had been able to receive rent payments.
This fund makes available a month of rental payments or $2000.
Ms Archer said 99 applications had been received to the fund.
She said 46 landlords had been collectively paid $77,357 as of Monday.
"The remaining 53 applications are under immediate assessment," Ms Archer said.
A bill was tabled in Parliament to provide a mechanism for residential landlords and tenants to enter into a payment plan to deal with rental arrears past December 1.
Ms Archer said if the bill was passed, a formal payment plan would be overseen by the state's Residential Tenancy Commissioner.
