Rental Assistance Could Ease Affordable Housing Crunch

PORTLAND, OR -- A new study finds a state managed rent assistance program would help reduce Oregon's affordable housing crisis. The Oregon Center for Public Policy study found around half of Oregon renters spend more than 30-percent of their income on housing. Daniel Hauser says one in four renters spend half of their income on rent which forces them to cut back on food, health care and other important costs. There is a federal program, but Hauser says a state run program would be able to target more low income in Oregonians who need help with the high costs of rent.
