In a recent survey, the federal government’s chief statistician, Michael Hiltzik, said rental assistance is “very, very important.”
Hiltzik has been a champion of the program, which was introduced in 2013.
His work has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and CNN.
And the data from his survey show that rental assistance has become a top source of income for millions of Americans.
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) both estimate that rental aid is the top source for federal tax payments for low-income households, according to the survey.
The federal government pays for up to 90 percent of rental assistance payments, according the report, which is based on the most recent data available.
The HUD has reported that rental subsidies helped more than 3.6 million households with a total household income of more than $100,000 in 2015.
The survey also found that more than 2 million households received more than half their income from rent assistance, including 2.4 million who received more $300 or less in payments.
The data show that the rental assistance provided by the federal programs helped more Americans than food stamps and cash assistance combined.
About 60 percent of renters receiving federal assistance received cash assistance in 2015, according a report released by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
About 55 percent of those renters received rent assistance.
About half of renters getting federal housing assistance received rent subsidies.
The Housing Assistance Report found that the vast majority of renters received rental assistance from both the FHA and HUD.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition, which advocates for renters in low- and moderate-income housing, said that nearly 1.4 billion Americans received some form of government-funded rent assistance in the fourth quarter of 2015.
That’s nearly 1 in 3 households in the United States.
The FHA provides cash assistance for rental assistance, which it said was more than the amount paid by other federal government programs.
The housing assistance programs are available to anyone in the country who qualifies.
The Department of Agriculture provides housing assistance, and it has been one of the most popular programs for the last decade.
The report showed that the majority of Americans who received rent aid received the amount of cash assistance that the USDA provided.
But the report also showed that only about 1 in 10 people who received the USDA-assisted housing assistance got more than 90 percent.
The USDA said it provided more than 100 percent of the federal assistance that was paid to low- to moderate- income renters in the last quarter of last year.
The U.S. Department of Education provided nearly 80 percent of that assistance, the Department for Education and the Bureau of Indian Education provided less than 50 percent, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency provided about 40 percent.
Hiltzik said the FHFA has been successful in helping more people find affordable rental assistance than other government programs, such as food stamps.
Hurtig, who has worked for HUD for the past 20 years, said the federal housing agency has made a major investment in expanding its rental assistance efforts.
“We are investing in new programs, especially in low income areas and in areas where there is a lot of work to be done, and we are investing a lot in the rental programs,” she said.
Hiltzik said there is “no question” that the federal governments investment in rental assistance makes it easier for renters to find affordable housing.
“You have to be very careful with how you spend those resources, because you can have a really hard time finding places to live and get housing,” he said.
