Publication date: 
October 2020

This report is the first output of a project conducted by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) on behalf of ACT Shelter. The project assesses the costs and benefits of providing social housing in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and builds a business case for addressing housing need in the ACT.

This first report provides a review of existing evidence around the benefits and costs of providing more social housing and outlines a process for undertaking further, in-depth analysis in the ACT context.
