Impact

The economic challenges facing some of our neighbors include: 

  • Assess to Affordable Housing
  • Access to a Living Wage
  • Access to Food and
  • Access to Transportation

The nation is currently facing one of the most severe affordable housing crises in history. Not surprisingly, those living in poverty are the most significantly affected.

In the 1970s, communities had plenty of affordable housing. That meant that when a family or individual experienced a crisis and lost housing, they could quickly find another place to live. But by the mid-1980s, the supply of low-cost housing had shrunk significantly. Since then, rents have continued to rise and lower-income people in particular have experienced slow or stagnant wage growth.

Today, 8 million extremely low-income households pay at least half of their income toward housing, putting them at risk of housing instability and homelessness. All of this according to End Homelessness Organization.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) states that food insecurity does not exist in isolation, as low-income families are affected by multiple, overlapping issues like lack of affordable housing, social isolation, chronic or acute health problems, high medical costs, and low wages.

National Shortage of Affordable Rental Housing states that the U.S. has a shortage of 6.8 million rental homes affordable and available to extremely low-income renters, whose household incomes are at or below the poverty guideline or 30% of their area median income. Only 37 affordable and available rental homes exist for every 100 extremely low-income renter households. Extremely low-income renters face a shortage in every state and major metropolitan area, including the District of Columbia. The Solution
