New NLIHC and PAHRC Report Highlights Preservation Risks Threatening Affordable Homes

The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) and the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation (PAHRC) released a new report, 2020 Picture of Preservation, which explores the pivotal role the federal government plays in building and preserving affordable rental homes at a time when millions of people in America are facing housing instability during the coronavirus pandemic. This report highlights the need for additional resources to protect the affordability of these homes; nearly 300,000 may be lost from the nation’s affordable stock in the next five years. Statewide preservation profiles are available here.
