Cities with soaring housing costs have had some success in lowering rents, but that relief has not reached the low-income renters most at risk of losing their housing. Nationally, the pace of rent increases is slowing, with the average rent in at least six cities falling since last summer. However, the decline is primarily in high-end rentals, not for the apartments and other units that house working-class residents who need it most.
