Housing impacts health, education, food security, employment, and access to public programs that help families with low incomes meet their basic needs.
Women head 75 percent of households served by HUD rental assistance programs (HUD, 2021), and we know that only 1 out of 4 eligible households receive HUD rental assistance (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, 2017). This means that millions more women in this country—especially women of color, women with disabilities, LGBTQ individuals, and immigrant women—face a daily struggle to have a roof over their and their families’ heads.
1 in 4 renters in America – 11.4 million households – have extremely low incomes and cannot afford the rent.
