This fact sheet was created in partnership with Fremont RISE to support their work to advance policies that protect renters. Key findings include:
- Renters are an important and growing constituency in Fremont, but 41 percent of them pay too much for housing.
- Rent affordability is a racial equity issue: Black renters face the steepest rent burdens.
- Renters have experienced a 12 percent increase in median rent and a 29 percent increase in households that are rent burdened since 2000.
