About the Nevada Housing Coalition
Every state in the U.S. lacks a sufficient supply of affordable housing for the lowest income residents, but Nevadans, more than any other state population, face the greatest challenge in finding affordable and available homes. According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, there are only 15 affordable and available rental homes for every 100 extremely low-income renter households in the Nevada; homeownership cost burdens are also a major concern to a growing share of residents. On any given day, there are more than 6,000 homeless individuals in Nevada, with thousands more in unstable housing.
Communities thrive when
people have access to stable, high quality, affordable housing. Pathways to economic mobility become
achievable as education, health outcomes, safety rates, and
overall engagement improve. Neighborhoods and communities become stronger and more
secure. In short, everyone benefits. The
Nevada Housing Coalition is committed to raising awareness and building
the capacity of our communities to create high-quality, dignified, and
attainable housing for all Nevadans.
