A profile of social housing in Australia /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2010Description: vi, 47 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report provides an overview of the different social housing programs that were provided under the most recent Commonwealth State Housing Agreement (CSHA), which was in place from 2003 to 2008, and the first six months of the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA), which was introduced in January 2009. It shows that, in 2009, 81%of households being assisted by social housing were in public rental housing, while 9% were in mainstream community housing (social housing managed by the not-for-profit sector). Over the life of the CSHA the number of community housing dwellings increased considerably, while at the same time there was a decline in public rental housing stock. By 2008-09 almost half of the new allocations to social housing were to mainstream community housing, despite representing only about 10% of total stock in social housing. ; The report shows the demographic profile of households in social housing changed little over the course of the CSHA agreement. Older single people made up the highest proportion of household types. The median age for tenants in public rental housing is 54 years, and 44 years for tenants in state owned and managed Indigenous housing (SOMIH), compared to the median age of 37 years for all people in the Australian population. As social housing generally offers affordable rents and some security of tenure, tenants largely report being satisfied and the majority of tenants in public rental and mainstream community housing had lived in the same dwelling for more than 5 years. Occupancy rates were over 90% across social housing, and higher in major cities, where most social housing dwellings are located.Availability: (1)

Affordable housing 2010-11 : comparing performance across Australia : National Affordable Housing Agreement /

by McClintock, Paul | COAG Reform Council.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. COAG Reform Council 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 30 April 2012 PDF is of full report only Chairman: Paul McClintock. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: This is the third report assessing progress under COAG's National Affordable Housing Agreement. In this report, the council focuses on the outcomes in the Agreement that relate to home purchase affordability, rental affordability, and housing market efficiency and responsiveness. The council found that nationally, based on the indicators and years that can be reported on, there is no indication that housing affordability has improved. Rental affordability in particular - as measured by the proportion of low income households spending more than 30 per cent of their income on rent - has worsened in capital cities and for those on the lowest incomes.Availability: (1)

Affordable housing and regional growth /

by Howe, Brian | Jope, Sally.

Publisher: unpub. 2005Description: 18p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: By The Hon Brian Howe 2005 Dunstan Foundation Fellow and Sally Jope Brotherhood of St Laurence Draft. Not for public citationSummary: How well are housing markets in the non-metropolitan regions able to respond to demand? What impacts does this have on low to moderate income households? To what extent is the supply of low-cost housing considered when regional growth is being planned? These are some of the questions being explored by Mr Brian Howe, a 2005 Dunstan Fellow. The 2005 Dunstan Fellows Program aims to improve awareness amongst the general public and key decision makers of current and future problems relating to affordable housing, especially for families, and to identify and encourage implementation of key measures to address those problems. The program consists of four principal projects, each of which led by a Dunstan Fellow in consultation with the Convenor. The projects focus on aspects of the following topics: 1. A National Affordable Housing Agreement (Julian Disney) 2. Financing Public Housing (Prof Mike Berry) 3. Regional Growth and Affordable Housing (The Hon Brian Howe) 4. Work, Families and Affordable Housing (Assoc. Prof Barbara Pocock) The aim of this paper is to provide key information and stimulate discussion on regional growth and affordable housing. This paper includes secondary evidence from a review of the literature on housing and regional development and findings from roundtable discussions and interviews with people responsible for economic development and social housing services in non-metropolitan regions experiencing growth. The discussions were held in a regional centre, a small town and a rural community. A final discussion is to be held in a growth area in NSW within the Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong region and will be included in the final report.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Based on an emerging consensus that a solution to this housing crisis is to attract a large volume of private investment into this sector, this paper outlines several models that may achieve this aim.

Alternative approaches to measuring rental housing affordability in Australia. /

by Landt, John | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Bray, Rob.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 49 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 16.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 1997. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: The study analyses a range of approaches to measuring housing affordability in the Australian private rental market. In particular, it compares traditional consumption-based measures of housing affordability with a new measure of housing affordability based on the Canadian core housing need model, which includes the suitability of the dwelling for the household's needs as well as its cost. The main findings of the study are that low income earners in the private rental market generally pay rents similar to those of higher income earners. This results in housing stress for some low income families and individuals in the private rental market.Availability: (1)

An analysis of private rental assistance reforms and the implications for Somali migrants /

by Sadowski, Christina.

Publisher: 1997Description: 11 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Unpublished student paper 1997. Bibliography p. 11Summary: "Housing policies in the 1990's have moved away from the promotion of home ownership and the direct funding of public housing to provision of rental assistance for private tenants...This paper will provide a brief overview and analysis of the rental assist reforms, and will discuss their predicted effects on Somali migrants. An exploration of housing experiences of recently arrived Somalis and an analysis of the implications of the policy reforms for this group provides evidence of gaps in rental assistance policies, and a resulting failure to meet the housing needs of Somali migrants."
