NLIHC will be airing a live podcast radio show to discuss the findings of this year’s Out of Reach report and the housing affordability crisis in the U.S. Listeners will have the opportunity to call-in with questions.

Launched last month, Out of Reach 2016, which documents the mismatch between the wages households earn and housing costs everywhere in the U.S., has received extensive media attention. The study found that in no state, metropolitan area or county in the United States can a full-time worker earning the prevailing minimum wage afford a modest two-bedroom apartment or, almost everywhere, a modest one-bedroom apartment. How large are the gaps? What do people with the lowest incomes do to pay rent? What public policy solutions are available to address the affordability crisis? Tune into this live program for answers.
Speakers for this broadcast will be:
- Diane Yentel, president and CEO, National Low Income Housing Coalition
- Andrew Aurand, Vice President Research, National Low Income Housing Coalition
