  5. 5. Lack of Affordable Housing ❏ Ever since the 2009 recession the United States has dealt with extremely high rates of rent coupled with stagnant rates and decreased job growth. ❏ “The lack of affordable housing has lead to high rent burdens, overcrowding, and substandard housing.” ❏ The elimination of affordable housing such as single-room apartments has resulted in a massive increase in the amount of homelessness.
