The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute developed the Utah Housing Affordability Dashboard in partnership with the Utah Department of Workforce Services. As part of House Bill 462, passed in 2022, the dashboard tracks moderate and affordable housing needs and supply across Utah communities. The information identifies the number of lower-income renter households who cannot find a moderate or affordable residence in the current market by comparing the number of renter households with the number of moderate, affordable, and available rental homes. The dashboard measures home purchase affordability by area at various income levels and tracks existing, deed-restricted, affordable housing supply. These metrics are presented for each county and municipality with a population above 5,000 residents.
Additionally, five-year projections of future needs for moderate and affordable rental housing at the municipal level are provided.
