QUESTION NO 76
Housing Trust Tenants - Financial Hardship Criteria
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.
