2017 Housing Rally to Demand More Funding for DC Affordable Housing Programs
CNHED’s March 18 ‘Housing for All’ rally to underline need to preserve and expand affordable housing in DC, call for more funding for the tools that make it possible.
This week, the Trump Administration released an outline of a proposed 2018 budget that entails cuts across many agencies, including a 13% cut to Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
On March 18, CPDC will joins CNHED and local affordable housing partners to advocate for continued and increased funding for DC affordable housing programs.
DC Mayor Bowser has committed to prioritizing housing and addressing homelessness, but many programs compete for District resources.
Housing programs like the Housing Production Trust Fund (HPTF) and Local Rent Supplement Program are critical to CPDC’s work.
Our 1330, Mayfair Mansions, Overlook at Oxon Run and Wheeler Terrace communities all were renovated with HPTF dollars–and renovations at two of our new acquisitions in the District–Fort Stevens in Northwest, DC and Randle Hill in Southeast–will require HPTF funding.
Additionally, many CPDC residents use vouchers from the Local Rent Supplement Program to help subsidize their rent.
The ‘Housing For All’ campaign has in years past led District officials to make unprecedented investments in programs that build and preserve affordable homes, end chronic homelessness and create new opportunities for home ownership.
This year, the CNHED’s Housing For All Campaign and ‘More For Housing Now Rally’ has partnered with The Way Home Campaign for a joint event to demand the preservation and expansion of housing options that serve all DC residents.
