MINISTER FOR HOUSING AND FAMILY SERVICES

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION

QUESTION NO 76

Housing Trust Tenants - Financial Hardship Criteria

Ms McRae - asked the Minister for Housing and Family Services:

What is the criteria that will determine extreme financial hardship referred to in the proposals to charge a bond to new and transferring ACT Housing Trust tenants?

Mr Stefaniak - the answer to the Member's question is as follows:

I have asked ACT Housing to consider options and consult on a rent bond policy for public housing tenants. I have received comments from the community sector on a draft proposal. However, as yet, there is no formal policy nor the final details of such a policy.

When the policy is determined, I will make it available to the Member, including the criteria for determining extreme financial hardship.
