CBPP Releases State Fact Sheets for Housing Choice Vouchers

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) posted updated, interactive state fact sheets about the Housing Choice Voucher program for each state and the District of Columbia. The fact sheets provide the latest information on voucher recipients, including demographic breakdowns; where vouchers are used across urban, suburban, and rural areas; the total federal dollars going to landlords who take vouchers; and the potential loss of vouchers if Congress does not increase renewal funding sufficiently to cover rising rents.

Another fact sheet highlights how vouchers fight homelessness and increase opportunities for children in each state. This fact sheet includes recent data on the unmet need for rental assistance in a state, including the number of homeless people and children without stable housing.
