What Keeps Wendell Pierce Up At Night

Rent Is Due Tomorrow

Today is July 31st—which means that for many people,rent is due tomorrow. But we know from watching recent data that a lot of people won't be able to pay by that deadline.According to a recent survey, nearly a third of Americans were late on their housing payments in July—or missed them altogether. Andotherresearchsuggests that as many as 23 million renting families are at risk of losing their housing by October. That's 20% of all renters in the U.S. So if you’re worrying about how and if you're going to be able to stay in your place, we want to hear from you. If you’re managing to make rent, but it’s tight, what tradeoffs are you making to be able to pay? And if you think you might need to leave your place because of money, where do you think you might go? Tell us what’s going on for you by the end of the weekend. Record a voice memo and send it to us by Sunday night, atdeathsexmoney@wnyc.org.
