Updated state-by-state fact sheets from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) break down the number of households that receive each major type of federal rental assistance from HUD and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), demographic information on who uses federal rental assistance programs and the total federal dollars that rental assistance programs contribute to each state’s economy. These fact sheets also detail recent data on the unmet need for rental assistance in each state, including the number of low-income households that pay more than half of their income on rent and the number of homeless people and children in the state. While federal rental assistance programs provide homes to over 5 million low-income households nationwide, there are still more than 11 million households paying more than half of their income in rent, meaning that for every household that receives assistance there are twice as many eligible low-income households who do not.
