Addressing Our Housing Challenges Together

Addressing Our Housing Challenges Together

Home: A place of residence or refuge. A vital component to thrive, it’s increasingly beyond the reach of too many of our neighbors. In our metro area, a household must earn $17 per hour to afford a fair market rate two-bedroom apartment. Even with the increase of the Ohio minimum wage this year to $8.70, that translates to a single mother working two full-time minimum wage jobs to house her family. Adding to her challenge is the significant lack of affordable housing in Greater Cincinnati — we need more than 40,000 units, a number which continues to grow. It’s not a sustainable model for maximizing the potential of all our residents, and the burden is higher for both black renters and homeowners.
