Los Angeles and Orange Counties have a shortfall of more than 660,000 homes affordable to the poorest families in the region — those earning 50 percent or less than the median income, a new series of housing reports from the nonprofit California Housing Partnership shows.

In Los Angeles County alone, there’s a shortage of 568,255 homes affordable to “very low-income” households, or those earning less than $35,000 a year.

Orange County has a shortage of 92,738 homes affordable to the very low income, defined as those earning less than $46,000 a year in O.C.

Silly article.
If a household is making less than $35,000 per year, how in the world do you provide housing at $1,000 per month, in LA, to make it affordable?
Most of the households are probably young and single people sharing an apartment. They don't need special housing.
If it's a family, they probably have rent subsidies anyway.
Disgusting how a newspaper will exaggerate and bullshit, just to sell newspapers.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
