A new report released by HUD, “Characteristics of HUD-Assisted Renters and Their Units in 2019,” details how HUD-assisted households and their housing units have changed over time and how HUD-assisted households compare to renter populations more generally. The report presents data on HUD-assisted households in three programs: public housing, Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs), and privately owned multifamily housing. The report finds that out of 19 million very low-income (VLI) renter households, 4.5 million, or only 23.7%, reside in HUD-assisted units. These households are more likely to be older, have low incomes, and have a household member with a disability compared to all renter households. Western states have a disproportionately low number of HUD-assisted units compared to other regions in the U.S.
