This report presents information on trends
and issues in housing policy, housing affordability and housing assistance
provided to populations with special needs. As housing and rental affordability
declines, the need for housing assistance continues to increase, with 1.3
million recipients of Commonwealth Rental Assistance and over 400,000 households
living in social housing. Of those households who were recently provided
assistance through social housing, the majority were identified as either
homeless or at risk of homelessness.
