Housing Crisis, Origins and Solutions with Tara Rollins, Executive Director of the Utah Housing Coalition

James Wood,Senior Fellow at the University of Utah's Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute recently wrote:

"Rent for a typical 2-bedroom apartment in SL County increased by $100 last year to $1,294.month. To afford such rent, an income of $51,000 would be required.

For 5 years, vacancy rates have been below 5%, leaving renters with few options if they cannot afford rent hikes.

In the last 5 years, rents have jumped by 41% in Ogden, 31% in Layton, 28% in Salt Lake City and 24% in Orem according to Utah Rent Report."

The Census Bureau says almost 20,000 Utahans are very or somewhat likely to lose their homes or face evictions in the next 3 months.

That is equivalent to all the people in Brigham City. This is a CRISIS!

That's Right...

Wyoming may have beat Utah by a few months in giving women the right to vote, but Utah is the first state where women first cast a ballot.

In honor of that historic event in 1870, Utah released a new license plate design Wednesday celebrating the state's women being the "first to vote" in modern American history.

The year 2020 will mark the 150th anniversary of the first women voting in Utah and the centennial of the 19th amendment, which assured women the right to vote nationwide.
