- Demand subsidies for low-income households
- Hulse, K.
- Governments view housing as a merit good and provide a range of financial subsidies to improve housing outcomes for households. Since the mid-1980s, there has been an increasing emphasis on demand subsidies to households rather than supply subsidies to financiers, developers, or managers of housing. Demand subsidies are widely used in Australasia, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia and assist households to buy or rent their housing. Their design and implementation reflects institutional arrangements for tax and income support systems as well as housing systems.
