Paying for Supported Housing Briefing Paper

The House of Commons Library published a briefing paper, Paying for Supported Housing (opens new window) which explains the impact of the Government's policy of requiring rent reductions, and also the application of Local Housing Allowance caps, on the supported housing sector.

It reports that the sector has argued that the measures threaten its viability. On 15 September 2016 the Government announced that LHA caps will apply in 2019/20.
