This study looks at 17 housing policies announced since 2000 with purpose to analyzing the special features of how public rental housing related policies were implemented in order to propose methods for strengthening sustainability of public rental housing supplies in the future. Result of the analysis of special features of the public rental housing policies presented in the 17 housing measures showed that the policies were not long-term forward looking policies but rather were “post measures” aimed at coping with the occurrences in the housing market. Recently, although such diversification of public rental housing is structured to operate within the government’s “Roadmap for Income-based Residential Welfare”, content-wise the policies whose objective was to stabilize housing conditions for low-income households have now taken on new functions such as controlling supply & demand and stocking reserve supplies. With these new functions, the policies may give rise to ambiguity of eligible households and standards for financial supports. Therefore, in order for the public rental housing to fulfill its original function and to be ensured that it is delivered to the originally intended households, the following are needed: (1) Coordination of mid/long term housing supply & demand plans including the current Comprehensive Housing Plan 2003-2012; (2) Other housing stabilization measures other than supply policies; (3) Procedures for assessing policy implementation through constant monitoring; (4) Regulatory framework for clarifying the policy objectives of different types of public rental housing; and (5) Development and dissemination of housing welfare programme software that can improve living qualities.
