How to Save Money on Housing with Government Programs
According to government officials, the lack of affordable housing has reached a crisis stage. The statistics bear this out. A McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) report says a third of all urban dwellers could face “housing insecurity” by 2025. That’s 1.6 billion people worldwide who could struggle to find decent housing.
With numbers like these, many governments are beefing up current housing programs and funding new ones.
In this section, we discuss some of these programs. You’ll find articles about home sharing, housing lotteries, free and low-cost homes, “age in place” programs for seniors, HUD housing, Section 8 housing and much more.
