Affordable Housing

In its 2009 report on Housing + Transportation Affordability in the region, The Drachman Institute underscored the importance of linking both housing and transportation costs in an index of affordability. With affordability being defined at 45% or less of household income as the standard of affordability at that time, only the city core met the criterion. Community maps made available through The Center for Neighborhood Technology suggest that conditions had not improved much by 2011. Indeed, less than 28% of the region’s neighborhoods met this affordability criterion. Explore their maps and data here.
