Reports State of the Nation’s Housing 2012
On June 14, 2012, the Joint Center for Housing Studies released the report The State of the Nation’s Housing 2012. The report points to the effectiveness of increased federal funding for homeless programs in response to the housing crisis as a main factor contributing to the decline in homeless households.
The report also notes the rising number of housing cost burdened households; between 2007 and 2010, the number of U.S. households paying more than half of their incomes for housing rose by 2.3 million, bringing the total to 20.2 million.
