Households paying more than 30 percent of income on housing are considered cost-burdened and may have difficulty covering other general expenses, such as food, clothing, transportation, or medical costs. In New Hampshire, the most recent estimates available show that, before the pandemic, nearly half of all renter households in the state were paying more than 30 percent of their income on rent and utilities.
