National Low Income Housing Coalition’s Out of Reach 2016 Report Released
The Virginia Housing Alliance and the National Low Income Housing Coalition jointly released Out of Reach 2016 report, which provides the housing wage for all states, counties, and metropolitan areas in the country. Each year, the data in Out of Reach informs housing policy makers and advocates at the national, state, and local levels. It also provides the average wages of renters, the number of hours minimum wage earners must work to afford rent, and the cost of rental homes across the country.

The report highlights the gap between what renters earn and what it costs to afford rent at fair market value. According to 2016 Out of Reach, Virginia remains the most expensive state for renters in the Southeast and the 10th most expensive state in the nation. Click here to read the full article.
