On May 10, 2019, Mayor Muriel Bowser signed an order directing District agencies to address housing affordability in the District of Columbia. The Housing Framework for Equity and Growth is their response to the Mayor’s bold call to action. To start, the District needs to create 36,000 new residential units by 2025 with at least 12,000 affordable for low-income residents to ensure all residents can live in the city without being burdened by housing costs. An additional 7,200 affordable homes need to be preserved. Learn more about the Mayor’s Order on Housing here.
Led by the DC Office of Planning (OP) and DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the Bowser Administration invites you to join a community conversation about the framework on Saturday, September 21, from 1–3 pm, at Ron Brown High School. Doors open at 12:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP here.
This community conversation will be an opportunity for residents and organizations to learn about the Housing Framework for Equity and Growth, and for city agencies to hear from you about your vision for the District’s housing goals. The event will consist of presentations from District agencies and will ask residents to provide feedback through small group discussions. To learn more about the initiative, please visit housingdc.dc.gov.
