What are state-subsidised homes like ARA aparments?

Some SATO rental homes are state-subsidised, which means assets of the person (or family or other people moving in) selected as a resident must meet the requirements set by the state. These apartments are marked with the ARA and/or 'Asset limitations'. The selection of tenants for these apartments is based on a needs assessment in which assets as well as housing needs and income level are used as criteria.
