This fact sheet was created in partnership with Filipino Advocates for Justice and RISE to support their work to advance policies that protect renters. Key findings include:
- Renters are an important and growing constituency in Union City, but 51 percent of them pay too much for housing.
- Rent affordability is a racial equity issue: people of color face the steepest rent burdens.
- Renters have experienced a 15 percent increase in median rent and a 69 percent increase in households that are rent burdened since 2000.
