The Salvation Army has issued a report on the state of housing policy in New Zealand. It considers the main housing assistance programmes – the accommodation supplement and subsidies paid by the state to Housing New Zealand – and goes on to suggest a framework for developing a sustainable and effective housing policy. Their view of the past 20 years of housing policy is summed up in two words, shaky and rudderless.
