Affordable Housing

As the District grows, residents increasingly struggle with the city’s high and rising housing costs.

For low-income families, paying far more than they can afford just to keep a roof overhead makes it even harder to afford basic necessities, or to achieve the financial security necessary for economic mobility. DCFPI analyzes the District’s investments in affordable housing, from rental assistance to homeownership. Our work highlights how creating and preserving affordable homes is critical to having an inclusive city where all residents can live and succeed.
