Condition report: Low income earners in the Tasmanian private rental market

This research showed that low income households in Tasmania are increasingly at risk of ‘after-housing’ poverty as a result of a shortage of affordable, adequate and secure housing. Such housing is essential to health and wellbeing, social participation and community building, and therefore, the provision of affordable housing for low income earners is essential for the Tasmanian community as a whole. Anglicare called on the State Government to make the increase of affordable housing a budget priority with additional resources in the form of recurrent funding and in the establishment of a Social Infrastructure Fund for Affordable Housing to resource initiatives in this area.
