Credit for Renting

The Impact of Positive Rent Reporting on Subsidized Housing Residents

For many Americans, financial exclusion is a reality. These Americans, many of whom consistently meet their financial obligations as agreed, operate primarily on a cash basis and are exempt from mainstream financial services products due to limited or no credit history. Therefore, these individuals are dependent on high-cost, short-term credit, and they pay a premium for access to basic services such as utilities and telecommunications.

As a result, many of these individuals remain excluded from access to mainstream financial services that ultimately could improve their economic well-being and facilitate their entry into the financial mainstream.
