The United Way Suncoast has released a new online dashboard called ‘State of the Housing Crisis.’
On WMNF’s Tuesday Cafe, we talked about that dashboard, what information is there, how you can use it to get help and why housing seems so unaffordable. The guest, Douglas Griesenauer, is the director of workforce development and financial stability for United Way Suncoast.
Listen to the full show here:
Half of Tampa Bay area families are rent-cost burdened
The United Way Suncoast’s new study on the housing crisis “reveals that 1 in 2 families in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, and DeSoto Counties are rent-cost burdened.” That is defined as families that spend more than 30 percent of their monthly income on rent.
You can listen to WMNF’s Tuesday Cafe beginning at 10:06 a.m. ET every Tuesday on 88.5 FM Tampa / St. Petersburg / Sarasota, on the WMNF app or on wmnf.org.
