The importance of affordable housing
Monday, May 16, 2016
Any financial advisor will tell you that it’s not wise to commit to spending more than 30 percent of your income on housing. But the price of rent is rising at a faster rate than wages. A recent study showed that one in four renters in the United States spends half their income on housing.
When housing eats up 50 percent of your paycheck, it’s difficult to pay for necessities like groceries, day care, and health care. GROW South Dakota recognized the need for local, affordable housing early on. That’s why we’re involved in running affordable housing, apartment complexes in Doland, Leola, Milbank, Tulare and Wilmot.
