Affordable Housing

What’s the problem?

Our nation is facing a severe shortage of affordable housing, and Lincoln is no exception. In fact, housing is unaffordable for 46% of Lincolnites that rent at all income levels. That is, 21,655 Lincoln households are cost-burdened by their housing. Indeed, 85% of extremely low-income families in Lincoln spend more than one-third of their income on rent. Lincoln must address these issues before they become worse, and we urge Lincoln’s leadership to put our city at the forefront of national housing reform.

Use your voice to bring attention to our housing crisis. 

Stay on top of local housing policy and be a part of the fight.
