Did You Know?

  • Rents are rising – Rental prices are going up in Sacramento and nationally
  • Sacramentans are struggling to pay rent – 50,000 of our neighbors applied for just 3,000 spaces on an affordable housing wait list. The wait list does not guarantee housing.
  • The average renting Sacramento family earns less than $35,000 a year – These are people employed as pharmacy aides, child care workers, bank tellers and restaurant cooks. They cannot afford an average 2-bedroom apartment.
  • Families are doubling up in homes and must live in unsafe and overcrowded conditions – Nearly 24,000 Sacramento area homes are overcrowded.
  • Children living in poverty suffer most – More than 11,300 Sacramento County school students do not know where they will go home to at night.
  • By 2030, the number of seniors will grow by 125% – Many live on fixed incomes with already limited housing options.
  • The state has eliminated our major local source of funding to create affordable homes.
