AHURI’s COVID-19 Research Hub releases first report

AHURI has released the first report that has been developed for its COVID-19 Research Hub, which it set up in May this year.

The hub houses AHURI’s latest research, policy analysis and news on housing, homelessness and urban responses to COVID-19 that fall under eight priority research areas. The aim is to help governments at all levels make the best housing policy decisions during and following the coronavirus pandemic.

The first piece of research, Renting in the time of COVID-19: understanding the impacts, found almost 40 per cent of the renters surveyed could not afford essentials such as bills, clothing, transport and food, after paying rent, because their incomes had been reduced significantly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
