2021 Out of Reach Report

Every year the National Low Income Housing Coalition releases it’s Out of Reach Report and this year COVID-19 and its economic fallout underscore the need for a stronger housing safety net. COVID-19 was an economic catastrophe for many households, disproportionately people of color, precisely because so many already could not afford their homes. Jurisdictions across the country had to create new emergency rental assistance programs, because pre-pandemic housing assistance programs, where they existed at all, were inadequate to keep renters housed. Long after the public health dangers and economic crisis gradually recede, low-wage workers and low-income renters will continue to be in a precarious position, until we create permanent solutions to widespread housing unaffordability.

In Minnesota, a full-time worker needs to earn an hourly wage of $21.78 on average to afford a modest, two-bedroom rental home in the state.  Each week, a worker in Minnesota must work more than 69 hours to afford a modest one bedroom rental at fair market rate. Use this link to read the full report.  

About Minnesota NAHRO
