Social housing in Sweden
Sweden has no social housing, but public rental housing. 3 out of 10 million Swedes live in rental housing. More than half of rental housing is publicly owned, usually by a municipally owned public housing company. (source: https://www.sabo.se/).
While there is no "social" housing, there is housing allowance available depending on certain criteria (source: https://www.forsakringskassan.se/), including:
- families with children and low incomes
- young people (<29y) without children with low income
- unemployment or on long-term sickleave
- people with disabilities
- above 65 and low pension
