Abstract


The housing problems in Indonesia are related to low-income community such as backlog, sub-standard house
and slum settlement, which are caused by the ineffectiveness of housing regulations. This study was conducted to
evaluate the existing housing regulations in order to support housing provision for low-income community. The
study was conducted with qualitative approach, by evaluating the Housing Law No. 1/2011, Housing Law No.
4/1992, Minister of Housing Regulation No. 3/2007, and Minister of Housing Regulation No. 10/2011. The result
showed that the new housing law was already accommodated the housing provision for low-income community.
Nevertheless, many problems on the implementations were related with the commitment and budget capacity of
local government. Meanwhile, the limitation standard of low-income community (IDR 2,5 M) was 35% higher than
average income of Indonesian people, and the standard price of social house (IDR 25 M) which had standard size
(36 m2) was 44 % lower than the market price. These had resulted in the ineffectiveness on the implementation of
the regulation. The conclusion was that the existing housing regulation was fair effective to support housing provision
for low-income community, but it was still had weaknesses associated to low-income community limitation
standard and social house standard price.
