Administrative Practices in Russia's Housing Allowance Programme

June 1, 2000

Abstract

[© Urban Studies] Implementation of housing allowances is an integral part of Russia's programme of systematic rent increases on state and municipal rental units which began in 1994. Because housing allowances constitute the country's first income-tested programme, its performance transcends the housing sector. Reported here are the results of a first-time assessment of the practices of local housing allowances offices (HAOs) who administer the programme.
