Cost rental tenancy not social housing support

35. (1) For the avoidance of doubt, a tenancy in respect of a cost rental dwelling is not social housing support within the meaning of section 19 of the Act of 2009, notwithstanding that the dwelling may be provided or let by a housing authority, or by an approved housing body.

(2) Where housing assistance in respect of a cost rental dwelling is provided to a household specified in section 34 such assistance shall be deemed to be an appropriate form of social housing support for a household that is determined by a housing authority under section 20 of the Act of 2009 to be qualified for such support.
