The Housing Assistance Payment discretion rate is to increase to 35 per cent.

That's up from the current rate of 20 per cent.

Minister for Housing Darragh O'Brien signaled the move today, saying it will secure and expand more tenancies and prevent new entries to homelessness.

The Minister also says there is a need to decrease the reliance on market subsidies, but that can only be done through scaling up social housing supply.
