An interesting chart about federal housing programs:
And a comment from the page where the chart was found:
The part of this picture that gets the most attention usually is how heavily weighted upper-income subsidies are toward homeownership at the expense of renting. But more important is that households making over $100,000 a year — who represent less than 1 percent of households with severe cost burdens — get about 57 percent of the benefits from the programs included in the above chart. Our housing policy isn’t just heavily biased against renters. It’s hugely regressive too.
