Protect Affordable Housing

There are many actions the District can take to support affordable housing. I call on the D.C. government to take some very specific steps:

  1. Increase funding for Limited Equity Housing Cooperatives
  2. At least double funding for the Housing Production Trust Fund
  3. Strengthen rent control laws
  4. Build more public housing
  5. Finalize the rules for the District Opportunity to Purchase Act, a law the District has on the books that can protect and expand affordable housing

    When the “average” home in America sells for $347,000 there is a real housing crisis.
