Tough times for renters

A report by the National Low Income Housing Coalition shows, unsuprisingly, that Nevada is the worst place a renter could live. The report reads in part:

“The states where extremely low-income renters face the greatest challenge in finding affordable and available homes are Nevada, with only 15 affordable and available rental homes for every 100 extremely low income renter households, California (22/100), Delaware (24/100), and Oregon (25/100). … The states with the greatest percentage of extremely low-income renter households with a severe cost burden are Nevada (80%), Florida (79%), California (77%), Oregon (76%), Arizona (75%), and Colorado (75%).”

It is the fourth year in a row that Nevada came in dead last in the report.

Tesla announced in 2015 it would provide jobs for up to 6,500 workers at a plant in Storey County, just 17 miles from Sparks, giving developers and local officials plenty of notice of what was coming.
