Housing Affordability in Hamilton County
In Cincinnati and Hamilton County it is increasingly difficult for families to find quality affordable homes. More than 110,000 households in the County, almost one-third of the total, spend more than 30% of their income on their home. The challenge is particularly acute for extremely low income households; there is an estimated deficit of 40,000 units affordable and available to our lowest income neighbors.
