In Texas alone, there is a 594,000 shortage of rental homes affordable and available for extremely low renters. Who are the extremely low-income renters in Texas (30% or less of area median income)?

18% are disabled

21% are seniors

47% are in the labor force

For the elderly (65 and up) and disabled with only Supplemental Security Income of $771 per month in Texas, one can afford $231 (30% of their paycheck). Social Security Income in Texas of $771 can not support the elderly and disabled. It would take an annual wage of 34,332 to afford a 1-bedroom apartment in Texas (30% of the salary is going to the apartment). If you were working $7.25 per hour, it will take you 91 hours a week to comfortably afford a 1-bedroom apartment in Texas.

Even if wealth equality decreases, affordable housing should easily have an above 80% occupancy with many current markets at 95+% occupancy.
