Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Washington, DC is growing quickly. This year, we became 700,000 residents strong and we continue to grow by about 800 residents every month. Tensure that people of all backgrounds can continue to live and thrive in Washington, DC, we are making historic investments in affordable housing, homeownership programs, and housing preservation. 

For four consecutive years, we have invested $100 million in our Housing Production Trust Fundthe largest fund of its kind in the nation. We have enhanced home buyer programs to put homeownership in reach for more residents and auctioned off vacant properties to make way for more affordable workforce housing. We are working aggressively to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring. And we're finding new ways to help our seniors age in place. 

To make it easier for Washingtonians to learn about the many programs and resources that are now available, earlier this year we launched rootstoroofsDC.com. This Saturday, this one-stop shop for all things housing will come to life at the 10th Annual DC Housing Expo and Home Show. The Housing Expo and Home Show in an opportunity to learn more about the programs available and to get all your housing questions answered by experts. Learn more and RSVP HERE.
