Cobbs Creek Neighbors shared CityLab's post.

This problem is not isolated to our community, our city or even our state.

    Not One American State Has Enough Affordable Housing
    While supply varies by state, not one has enough housing for low-income renters. Finding affordable housing isn't getting any easier for the more than a quarter of U.S. renters that are extremely low-income.
