Abstract: In recent years many European governments have reduced the role of social housing in accommodating low-income households and increased the role of the private rented sector with the aid of housing allowances. The Irish government had expected that this would lead to better value for money and would give claimants greater flexibility. However, this has not proved to be the case and housing allowance claimant numbers have been very difficult to control. The Irish experience highlights some administrative strategies which could be employed by other countries to address this problem
