Incentivising small-scale investors to supply affordable private rental housing

Roughly one-third of Australian households rent their residential dwelling, and housing affordability is a particularly acute concern for low and middle-income households in the private rental sector. Among other measures, governments have sought to address the issue by incentivising greater small-scale investment in the supply of affordable rental housing through the use of tax benefits, regulatory concessions and other policy levers. These efforts have had limited success, and incentivising small-scale investment in affordable private rental housing remains a challenge.
