A housing association model for social housing in Tasmania – Anglicare’s bottom line

Selina Claxton 2009, Discussion paper, Housing, Research library

Anglicare will not support a housing association model for the future delivery of social housing in Tasmania that in any way reduces the conditions and protections that tenants enjoy under the current public housing system. Although the clear hope of government is that a move to a housing association model will result in greater access to two important sources of funding, Commonwealth Rent Assistance and private investment, Anglicare’s belief, supported by research evidence, is that achieving the outcomes below will not be possible without a considerable and recurrent government subsidy.
