WFN In The Field

Neighborhood Street in Montclair, CA
Nearly three of every four low-income households in San Bernardino County experiences cost burden (spending more than 30% of household income on housing expenses), overcrowding, or substandard housing conditions, problems that are even more acute for minority households. WFN’s Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice will use this and other data to identify barriers to fair housing choice in the County.
