Los Angeles County and Columbus Struggle to Provide Adequate Housing Voucher Support

The search for affordable housing is becoming increasingly difficult in Los Angeles County, where voucher holders are struggling to find a place to call home.

According to recent research, voucher holders often face a number of barriers when trying to find housing, including discrimination from landlords and limited availability of rental units.

In Columbus, Ohio, the situation is even worse. A recent privatization of the housing voucher program has led to a number of tenants being unable to find a place to live.

“I feel more insecure now,” said one tenant who has been searching for a home for the past six months. “It’s like I’m being punished for something I didn’t do.”

The privatization has caused a number of tenants to fall behind on rent payments and face eviction. It has also led to a decrease in the number of available rental units.

The situation is similar in other cities across the country, where voucher holders are struggling to find affordable housing.
