Updated Report Shows Drastic Shortage of Affordable, Available Units to Extremely Low-Income Hoosier Households

21 Mar 2019 10:21 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

A recent report update from the National Low Income Housing Coalition illustrates the critical need for affordable housing in Indiana. NLIHC researchers found that there is a 134,485-unit shortage of affordable, available rental housing for the 212,377 extremely low-income (ELI) renter Hoosier households. Households that are severely cost=burdened and are spending more than half of their income on housing are bearing the brunt of this crisis, and are more likely than other renters to forgo healthy foods and healthcare in an effort to pay for rent.


Additionally, they are more likely to experience evictions. Indiana currently has one of the highest eviction rates in the nation. To view the entire Indiana state profile, click here.
