Mayor Muriel Bowser today announced that the D.C. government is investing $103 million in funding for nine projects that will provide housing for more than 1,700 residents. The nine selected projects span five wards — Wards 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 — and include a mix of preservation efforts and building new units.
“Washington, DC is growing quickly, so we’re working quickly to make room for everyone, especially our long-time residents,” Mayor Bowser said in the release. “Using every tool in our toolbox means preserving the affordable housing we already have available, building new units, and funding innovative projects that do both—that’s what these nine projects will do.”
The projects include housing for seniors and permanent supportive housing for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. You can read all the details here.
