There are 716,367 extremely low income renter households in Texas whose income is $18,422 or less for a family of four. 78% of them pay more than half of their incomes for rent leaving very little for other important items like food, utilities, transportation, medical care, clothing, and other expenses incurred through daily living.
In support of the National Housing Trust Fund, we are sharing the “Resolution in Support of Expanded Housing Options and Greater Tax Fairness,” created by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. We encourage you to use this to recruit city and county governments to the cause. Download here: Texas Draft Resolution
As Texas continues to grow, we cannot forget about the people already living here who need our help. The more affordable housing that is made available to the extremely low income renter households, the fewer families that will experience homelessness.
