From WTTW's Chicago Tonight: Chicago's Critical Rental Shortage for Impoverished Households

"For extremely low-income households, there is a shortage of affordable housing across the U.S., according to a report released Thursday by the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

In Illinois, there are 32 available and affordable units for every 100 such households; that number drops to 26 in Chicago, according to the report, which identifies extremely low-income households as those with income at or below the poverty guideline, or 30 percent of the area’s median income."
