Affordable Housing, Household Stability
One in four renter households pays more than half their income on rent. Another 610,000 people are homeless. To afford a typical two-bedroom apartment, people earning minimum wage would need to work 104 hours a week.
A new Enterprise report, Impact of Affordable Housing on Families and Communities, collects these and other powerful facts. Together, the data tell the story of America’s housing insecurity crisis.
