NAHMAnalysis--The State of the Nation's Housing 2021 (Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies Report)

July 19, 2021

Dear NAHMA Members,

Today, NAHMA published a NAHMAnalyses examining The State of the Nation’s Housing 2021, a recent report published by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University assessing the housing and rental markets, demographic trends, and housing challenges faced by households in the United States.  With the U.S. economy recovering from the effects of the pandemic, many renters and homeowners continueg to struggle with billions of dollars in back rent owed, unpaid mortgages, and are at risk of eviction or foreclosure. Families of color and households with low incomes comprise a disproportionately large share of those at risk.  The report also provides recommendations such as further government support, in addition to the relief measures taken so far, necessary to ensure that both households and landlords benefit from a rebounding economy.

The State of the Nation’s Housing 2021 NAHMAnalysis is available here.
