Data on Accommodation supplement

G Sharma made this Official Information request to Ministry of Social Development

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for G Sharma to read a recent response and update the status.

From: G Sharma

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

I am interested to look at the last 5 years of data for money given out to people as "Accommodation Supplement" categorized by each year.

It will help me to complete my research on how much money Government is spending per year to help people from sky rocketing and completely out of reach rents.

If possible I would love to see the same data separated out by main cities such as Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Tauranga and Hamilton as well.

Yours faithfully,

G Sharma

To gather the data that you have requested, the Ministry would go based

Alternatively, the Ministry can  reporting on council boundaries. The
Minsitry will be able to provide the information for the 16 council
boundaries.

 

Please could you confirm whether you would be happy for your requests to
either include the TLA or council boundaries – Including any additioanl
cities you would like added, so we are able to provide the information you
are seeking.

 

If the Ministry does not receive a response by midday on 21 April 2021, we
will proceed with providing the inforamtion for the council boundaries.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding the refinement of your
request.
