2021 Sacramento County Housing Needs Report
On May 12, California Housing Partnership Corporation, in collaboration with Sacramento Housing Alliance, released the annual housing needs data assessment for Sacramento County in addition to Yolo, Placer, and El Dorado Counties. The report shows that Sacramento County needs 58,383 more affordable rental homes for families who are paid a low income, to meet current demand and renters in Sacramento County need to earn $26.77 per hour – 1.9 times the state minimum wage – to afford the average monthly asking rent of $1,392. The report highlights recommendations for policy changes at the state and local level that can support the production of the homes Sacramento residents so desperately need. Our recommendations include reviewing policies through an equity lens to affirmatively further fair housing and identifying new sources of local revenue for affordable homes.
