HUD released its latest Comprehensive Housing Affordability Strategy (CHAS) data on August 5. State and local governments use CHAS data to examine their housing needs, make spending decisions, and draft their Five-Year Consolidated Plans and Annual Action Plans required to receive CDBG, HOME, and other HUD funding programs. The data are available for states, counties, places, and census tracts. Users can either download the raw data files or use the CHAS data query tool. The query tool provides the number of low- and moderate-income households, the number of households (by income) with housing cost burdens (spending more than 30% of their income for housing), and the number of households (by income) with severe housing cost burdens (spending more than 50% of their income for housing).
