Book Description:
Low-income families with housing problems are found in every section of the United States. They are located in large cities like Los Angeles and New York, but also in small towns and rural areas, in colonias on the border with Mexico, and on American Indian tribal areas of Arizona, New Mexico, and elsewhere. Long-term demographic and economic trends point to an increase in the number of low-income people with housing difficulties. Recent changes in welfare programs could accentuate these problems. This book presents an overview of housing problems currently facing low-income families and individuals and trends that may accentuate or mitigate these problems. For one thing, rising rents in private rental housing associated with a robust economy are resulting in a dwindling supply of decent and affordable housing available to low-income households.
