Map: Concord Market Rent and Renter Income

Overview

This map of median market rent by census tract and annual household incomes was produced for the Raise the Roof coalition, which is working to ensure that everyone has a home as well as a sense of safety and belonging in the city of Concord. It shows the disconnect between high market rents and the incomes of Concord renters. We found that the majority of Concord renters have annual household incomes below $50,000, yet there are no neighborhoods in the city with median market rents affordable to families with that income. The majority of Concord neighborhoods are affordable only to families with incomes above $75,000, which account for just one in four of the city's renter households.
