Issue Position: Affordable Housing

One of the most pressing issues for many families in District 15 is finding safe, quality, affordable housing. According to the U.S. Census, 59% of the housing in district 15 is renter occupied, and it doesn't take more than a drive around central Sioux Falls to see that many of the houses are in serious disrepair. The Sioux Falls Homeless Coalition estimates that a two-bedroom apartment here costs $700/month, which requires someone to make $12/hour. With many families making well below that, it's no wonder that so many families are spending up to 50% of their income on housing, and are one car repair or medical bill away from being homeless.

The state can and needs to do more for these hard-working families. Creating more property tax incentives for landlords to offer quality, low rent apartments is one common-sense solution.
