Affordable Housing: Out of Reach?

Today, the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) released Out of Reach 2018: The High Cost of Housing. The report shows that on average a full-time worker in the U.S. must earn $22.10 per hour to afford a modest two-bedroom apartment at the fair market rent and $17.90 for a modest one-bedroom apartment. The report illustrates that rental housing is out of reach for millions of low-wage workers, seniors and people with disabilities living on fixed incomes, and other low income households.
