Access to quality housing

Black families are more likely to rent.

Nearly two-thirds of the housing units occupied by Black households are rented, compared to less than 30 percent of white households. Many renters are housing cost burdened, meaning they spend more than 30% of their income on housing costs, leaving little for the rest of their basic needs like food and transportation. This places them at higher risk of housing instability, eviction, and homelessness.
