Reconcile what?
Private sector rental rates are irrelevant as to if social housing rents are subsidized.
Charging below market value for something is not subsidizing it.
Subsidizing it would mean paying money to reduce the cost.
Social housing is not subsidised, but unlike the private market, it is not run for a profit.
Good points. But are you suggesting that social housing is completely self-sufficirnt, without any money from local or national tax payers?

Including, of course, the salaries and other costs of those who administer, support, etc. social housing.
