National Report Reveals State and Local Strategies to Tackle the Nationwide Affordable Housing Crisis

The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) have released a comprehensive update to the Rental Housing Programs Database (RHPD). This database provides a wealth of information on state and locally funded programs dedicated to the creation, preservation, and expansion of affordable rental housing. The 2023 RHPD focuses on programs that offer a range of assistance, including tenant-based rental assistance, project-based rental assistance, capital resources, combinations of rental assistance and capital resources, and tenant tax relief. Using information from the database, they also published an accompanying report that reveals a total of 353 active rental housing programs across 48 states, 41 cities, and the District of Columbia as of August 2023. The RHPD is a crucial resource for housing advocates, state and local agencies, policymakers, and anyone interested in identifying successful models to tackle affordable housing challenges in their own communities.
