The Profiles for New Jersey’s 13 Congressional Districts are wonderful tools that can be used in advocacy efforts to share with your elected official the depth of need for affordable housing in your district.
Each profile contains a selection of data from Out of Reach for each Congressional District, including the:
Two-bedroom Fair Market Rent (FMR),
Area Median Income, and
In addition, the profiles contain:
Housing cost burden data from the 2010 American Community Survey, which offers an overview of the proportion of constituents burdened by the lack of affordable housing in each Congressional District, and
State-level renter statistics are also made available in each profile; these data include the number of affordable and available units per 100 households that are extremely low income (ELI) and very low income (VLI).
