HUD lays out 'worst cases'

In Atlanta, 51,900 households had what the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development labels "worst case" needs for rental housing assistance, according to a report released last week.

Households are considered to have worst case needs for housing assistance when they are renters with incomes below 50 percent of area median income (which, in Atlanta, was $27,400 for a four-person household in 1998); either pay over half their income for rent or live in severely inadequate housing; and, are not assisted by federal, state or local housing assistance programs.
