This is a special report by the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) National Data Collection Agency (NDCA) on the income status of clients assisted at SAAP agencies. The report utilises data from the SAAP ongoing Client Collection and the Income Issues Collection 5 May to 30 June 2000. The collection focuses of those SAAP clients with no source of income, the reasons some clients have no income, and also those clients receiving government income support payments before SAAP support. The income status of women escaping domestic violence, young people and migrant SAAP clients is a particular focus of this report. The report also presents background information on the wider Australian government income support system.
