The HPA data collection captures information about the recipients of HPA and instances of HPA assistance. HPA is administered by each state/territory housing authority and provides a range of financial assistance to eligible households to improve their access to, and maintain, home ownership.
Since 1997–98, the AIHW has compiled HPA data from states and territories on an annual basis. The data help to describe the performance of the current National Housing and Homelessness Agreement and the former National Affordable Housing Agreement and Commonwealth-State Housing Agreement.
The data collection has evolved over time, with changes to the data collection scope, procedures, data items collected and underlying definitions and concepts.
