Scope:Help on this term

The Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) Administrative Data Collection is one of three data sets that comprise the SAAP National Data Collection. This collection identifies and describes the agencies funded under SAAP. It contains descriptive information (such as number, size, structure and service node) about the 1,300 or so non-government and community organisations providing accommodation and support services to people who are homeless or in crisis. It is collated from information provided by State and Territory community service departments in the course of administering the SAAP program, and is stored in the SAAP National Data Collection Agency database.

The National Data Collection aims to provide good information about SAAP to agencies and program administrators to assist them in their work so that service for homeless people can be improved. In addition, the collection aims to provide good information about SAAP to peak bodies, community groups, and interested researchers to assist in debates about homelessness.
