Cost Burdens Among Extremely Low-Income Renters by Race and Ethnicity
Racial and ethnic disparities in housing cost burdens tend to be less pronounced among the lowest-income renter households. American Indians and Alaska Natives are less likely to be cost-burdened, but are more likely than others to live in over-crowded or physically inadequate housing.
Solving the Gap
We need significant and sustained federal investments in the national Housing Trust Fund, public housing, and the preservation of the existing affordable housing stock; expansion of the Housing Choice Voucher program to all eligible households; a National Housing Stabilization Fund to prevent evictions and homelessness; and stronger renter protections to help families stay stably housed.
