Detroit is currently facing the second highest rental prices in the U.S. after New York, where the average rent is $2,819 per month, according to the real estate website Zillow.
In Los Angeles, the average is $1,862 per month.
Detroit, meanwhile, is at the top of the list for the third-highest price in the nation at $1.95 million per month according to Zillows figures.
While it’s possible that Detroit may be facing a shortage of affordable housing in the city, the lack of affordable rental housing in that city has led many to question whether the city will continue to be a affordable place to live for people of color.
“What’s happened in Detroit is a huge setback to the city,” said Ali Davis, a member of the Detroit Coalition for the Homeless.
“People of color have had to go into other cities in order to get their needs met.”
The coalition is working to get the city to stop putting its resources toward making the city more diverse and inclusive.
For the past year, the coalition has been lobbying for a plan to create a community-based housing agency to provide affordable housing to low-income people of all races and ethnicities.
In January, the city launched a $2 million pilot project that would give the city a small portion of the funds from the $6 billion citywide housing levy that will be distributed to the area’s poorest residents in the next year.
The plan will help create 5,000 affordable homes over the next 10 years, with the city aiming to reach 80 percent of the residents by 2020.
The coalition has also pushed for a more inclusive development plan for the city.
The city has been working on an overhaul of its plan to redevelop Detroit’s downtown and is working on creating a more mixed-income development.
In April, the Coalition for Detroit announced plans to bring about 25,000 new jobs to the Detroit area by 2020, with some projects to be built on vacant land that currently sits in the area.
While the city has faced challenges building a more diverse workforce, the group has continued to push for more diversity in the workforce.
In a statement, the mayor’s office said the city is committed to supporting all communities, including those most impacted by the housing crisis.
“The mayor is committed for Detroit to continue its efforts to provide a safe and affordable place for all families, including the most vulnerable,” the statement said.
“Detroit is also a city that welcomes and values the contributions of all residents, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or gender.
The Mayor’s plan will continue the city’s work to create more housing for all residents and create new jobs for all.”
