COVID-19:Rental housing and homelessness impacts

This is the first of two planned reports from an ongoing investigation being undertaken as part of the UNSW-ACOSS Poverty and Inequality Partnership work program, and also supported by Mission Australia, National Shelter and Queensland Shelter. Initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the research focuses primarily on the domains of rental housing and homelessness. Its main aims are to inform an understanding of:

  • What relevant policy shifts or innovations have been prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic
  • How these policy innovations have been formulated
  • How policy innovations been implemented and with what effect – for both service delivery organisations and service users.
