25 Percent of Veterans Are Severely Cost Burdened

National Low Income Housing Coalition, NLIHC

A new report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, Housing Instability Among Our Nation’s Veterans, says that 1.5 million Veteran households suffered from severe housing cost burden in 2011, and spent more than half of their income on housing.

The report also said that there were significant disparities among Veteran households, with Veteran households headed by a racial minority, females, and those with a disability more likely to be cost burdened than their counterparts. The report found that Veterans with low incomes suffer from the shortage of affordable, decent housing just as low-income non-veterans do.
