Signs of gap in af­ford­able hous­ing grow

The Columbus Dispatch - - Metro&state - By Jim Weiker

A new re­port pro­vides more ev­i­dence that thou­sands of Ohioans can­not find an af­ford­able place to live.

The study by the National Low In­come Hous­ing Coali­tion, an ad­vo­cacy group, es­ti­mated that 227,304 ex­tremely low­in­come Ohio house­holds can­not find hous­ing they can com­fort­ably af­ford.

“Peo­ple need a safe, de­cent, af­ford­able place to live in or­der to re­cover from ad­dic­tion, raise a healthy baby, hold down a job, and do well in school,” said Bill Faith, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Coali­tion on Home­less­ness and Hous­ing in Ohio.
