Abstract: This paper explores the effectiveness of the Rent Assistance program in providing housing affordability to people who receive income support payments. It finds that although Rent Assistance does assist with affordability for many recipients in many areas, it fails to deliver affordability for over one third of Rent Assistance recipients. The paper recommends a review of the adequacy and structure of Rent Assistance.
