Data from the years immediately following the housing and foreclosure crisis show a devastating impact on the financial wellbeing of many households. Latino and Hispanic households, like many other households of color, were hit particularly hard and have been slower to return to homeownership and rebuild the wealth lost as a result of the crisis. Now, ten years later, what are the lingering impacts for Latino families and what new and ongoing challenges are facing this community with regard to affordable housing? In partnership with UnidosUS, the CCC conducted key informant interviews with UnidosUS Affiliates and with Latino households in order to provide a better understanding of the current affordable housing landscape.
