On June 14, 2023, the National Low Income Housing Coalition released Out of Reach 2023: The High Cost of Housing. Published annually, the report highlights the gulf between the wages people earn and the price of modest rental housing in every state, county, metropolitan area, and combined non-metropolitan area in the U.S. This year’s report shows how high rents resulting from rapid rent growth during the pandemic and the end of many pandemic-era benefit programs are combining to exacerbate the financial insecurity of renters with low-incomes, leading to higher eviction filing rates and increased homelessness in some communities. The report shows the gap between wages and housing costs is largest for people of color, and particularly women of color. The disparities are the result of historic and continuing racist housing policies that have led to people of color facing disproportionate challenges accessing decent and affordable homes.
