2019 Housing Impact Report: Trends in Housing Assistance and Who it Serves

In the US, there are 12 million very low-income cost-burdened households that could benefit from housing assistance, but do not receive, according to conservative estimates.

A home that’s made affordable through housing assistance increases stability, improves health and education outcomes, boosts financial security, and can lead to economic mobility for low-income families. Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation’s annual report, the Housing Impact Report (formerly known as the PAHRC Report), describes the latest research on the impact housing assistance has on families, adults, seniors, and children.
