Housing & Homeownership Reports & Graphics

Is the opportunity to purchase and maintain a home available to all those who choose to pursue it?

Homeownership has always been an essential ingredient in the American dream and is one of the most important means by which low-income and minority households can build wealth. For those that are not ready or able to buy a home, access to affordable, high-quality housing is essential. Whether owning or renting, having a safe, affordable place to live provides physical and financial security.
