The Dalles, OR. (June 13th, 2018) – This year’s Out of Reach report, released today from the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC), shows that Hood River and Wasco residents earning minimum wage would have to work almost two full time jobs just to afford a two bedroom apartment and still have money left over for other necessities like food, medicine and transportation. We know that families often pay much more of their income towards rent leaving them at risk of homelessness if an unexpected financial emergency or job loss occurs.
You can download the Out of Reach report here and learn about the housing wage in our community. To learn more about the work of the Mid-Columbia Housing Authority visit our website at www.mid-columbiahousingauthority.org.
