Report: Affordable housing situation in Reno ‘beyond crisis’

Reno’s affordable housing market is beyond crisis-at least that’s what county officials are telling state lawmakers. The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the housing authority is approving vouchers, but there’s nowhere to rent. The National Low Income Housing Coalition has named Nevada as the state that’s toughest for low-income renters, and with a growing homeless population, it’s a dangerous combination. They say the disappearance of weekly motels as a part of revitalization efforts are leaving more people out on the streets.
