The number of people living in Dallas has risen in recent years, and the city is seeing an influx of new people.
But the city has struggled to keep up with the influx of people from other parts of the country, including New York City, Chicago and Boston.
That’s partly because the number of available hotel rooms in the metroplex is so small, and partly because of a lack of affordable housing in many of the new communities.
The city is home to about 12.6 million people, and more than half of them live in Dallas.
That number is expected to jump to about 15 million by 2035.
With a growing population comes a rising cost of living.
According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates, Dallas is expected be the most expensive place to live in America for a decade to come, according to the Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank.
That could leave some people in the city with limited options, including the homeless, who make up one of the largest single groups of homeless people in Dallas, according in a new report from the American Action Forum.
“The vast majority of Dallas residents do not have access to affordable housing, and are living in a housing market that is more than two to three times as expensive as the rest of the nation,” the report said.
“This affordability gap has been a real barrier to moving to the suburbs and away from Dallas.”
To address that affordability problem, Dallas has worked to get people out of the city and into other areas.
For the last few years, the city’s housing authority has launched a pilot program that allows families and young adults with low incomes to move to a county near the metro area to live with them.
The program also offers incentives for families and single parents to move out of their homes.
“If you want to move, you can,” said Dallas Housing and Community Development Secretary Michael Houghton.
“It’s not a matter of ‘if’ you’re moving, it’s a matter ‘when.'”
The city has also invested heavily in the Dallas Regional Housing Authority, which was created in 2014 to provide affordable housing and help with the transition from Dallas to suburban communities.
This summer, the Dallas Housing Authority will open its first phase of the project, called the Regional Connector, which will offer units to families and singles.
“We have been a leader in helping our residents in the region transition,” Houghson said.
The agency also has invested in new transit infrastructure and a public transportation network.
The region is seeing a surge in new construction, as developers are increasingly looking to expand into suburban areas.
The Dallas area also is home in large part to a large population of foreign-born residents, many of whom are working in the area.
Dallas has been the epicenter of a debate over whether to expand the citywide sanctuary cities program, which would allow people living outside the country to be exempt from federal immigration laws.
The debate over sanctuary cities is expected at the National Conference of State Legislatures on Wednesday.
For Dallas, it has also been a battle to attract and retain workers from the outside world.
“Our jobs are moving from other states and other places,” said Julie Hildebrand, the director of the Dallas Area Chamber of Commerce.
“I think the people who have moved here are really focused on the Dallas region.
The folks who are here right now, they really want to work here.”
For many people in Denton, it will be another year before they can go home.
“As far as I know, the only thing we can do is stay here,” said Deena Ocasio-Cortez, a 34-year-old teacher.
“In Dallas, you go out and get a job.
But we’re not going to go out, and then come back and do something else.”
