Did you know? According to the Federal Government, the definition of affordability is for a household to pay no more than 30 percent of its annual income on housing. Families who pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing are considered severely cost burdened and may have difficulty affording necessities such as food, clothing, transportation and medical care.
Now more than ever housing is unaffordable for millions of people, and Wall street profits are being prioritized over human needs. The purpose of this site is to unite people across the country who don't have affordable, dignified, or stable housing. By sharing our stories, we will illustrate the impact of the housing crisis on our families, the economy and the country as a whole.
The Can’t Wait List is a project of the Homes for All Campaign. Homes For All is building the power of our communities to advocate for local and national policies that will expand truly affordable*, quality housing.
* HFA defines affordable housing as housing that is free from the threat of displacement, quality, community controlled, accessible, environmentally sustainable, and affordable to all.
