Orange County Housing Need Report 2022


The 2022 Affordable Housing Needs Report highlights market conditions in Orange County and key indicators of housing need for low-income families, including: levels of housing production, state and federal funding, asking rent trends, and local wages. Asking rents in Orange County increased by 16.7% between Q4 2020 and Q4 2021.


Correction May 26, 2022: An earlier version of this report misstated in the second graphic on page 4 that the income needed to afford average asking rent was $4,130/month or $23.83/hour. The correct amounts are $8,653/month or $49.92/hour.
