Scope:Help on this term

The Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) Demand for Accommodation data collection is one of three components of the SAAP National Data Collection (NDC). The National Data Collection aims to provide good information about the SAAP to agencies and program administrator to assist them in their work so that services for homeless people can be improved. In addition, the collection aims to provide good information about SAAP to peaks, community groups, and interested researchers to assist in debates about homelessness.

The Supported Accommodation Assistance Program Demand for Accommodation data collection is designed to collect data on the level of met and unmet demand for SAAP accommodation services for individuals as well as groups requesting accommodation. A group of people may consist of a couple, a person with children, or a group of friends. In such cases data is collected on only one form. Information is collected about the number of people who request accommodation at SAAP agencies, which requests are met and which are unmet, and the reason for this.

The Demand for Accommodation data is collected each time a request for accommodation is made at the agency, whether the person or group receive accommodation or not, for every day during the Collection period.
