In preparation for its annual Lobby Day in Washington, DC on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) updated its Congressional District Housing Profiles as well fact sheets on current legislative issues.

The profiles are based on the Out of Reach 2013 data and provides details on housing affordability for each of NJ’s twelve congressional districts. The data documents that NJ is the 4th most expensive place to rent an apartment.
