Advance Community Fund Seeks Help to Revitalize Underserved Communities in North Texas
With housing costs on the rise across Texas, finding an affordable place to live has become a crisis for too many families. Family incomes are not rising nearly as quickly as home prices in most regions of the state. According to studies, housing costs should account for less than 31 percent of a family’s income; but unfortunately, almost half of all Texas households (49 percent) are spending more than that to keep a roof over their heads. They are considered cost-burdened, and that burden increases as housing and rental costs rise to 40 percent, 50 percent or even more of a family’s monthly income.
