We believe all District residents deserve decent quality affordable housing at a price they can afford, and call on District officials to invest in a full Continuum of Housing.
Our campaign goal is to win housing policy in the District that meets the needs of all District residents. To truly address housing needs, DC must commit three times more funding for affordable housing than it currently does.
We call on the Mayor and City Council to fully fund the Continuum of Housing and provide Housing for All by investing $255 million dollars to address our city’s affordable housing needs.
What is the Continuum of Housing?
We use the phrase“continuum of housing” to refer to housing that meets people’s affordable housing needs, wherever they are in their lives. The continuum of housing includes: supportive housing for people who are at risk of homelessness or have special needs, assisted rental housing that fills the gap between what people can afford to pay and the high cost of rent, and homeownership for families purchasing their first homes and tenants preserving their apartment buildings.
Housing for All and You:
This campaign is only possible with your support. We can change the city’s commitment to affordable housing by showing our city leaders how much DC cares about affordable housing. We will stand together – as homeowners and renters, business owners and clergy, workers and students, those who have stable housing and those who don’t – as neighbors who demand affordable housing for all.
