NLIHC 2018 Out of Reach Report

How much do you need to earn to afford a modest apartment in your state? Each year, Out of Reach reports on the Housing Wage — the hourly wage a full-time worker must earn to afford a modest and safe rental home without spending more than 30% of his or her income on housing costs. The report highlights the gap between what renters earn and what it costs to afford rent at Fair Market Rent.
