How Land Use Policies Impact Housing Opportunity Across the District -- Saturday, December 7
We hosted a housing discussion on how federal and local land use policies shaped segregation in the District and how segregation impacts opportunity for residents. We watched the short film "Segregated by Design," heard from local and national experts, and shared how residents can support the District's efforts to address historic inequities and advance opportunities through our current housing initiatives.
Community Conversation on Housing -- Saturday, September 21
We hosted a citywide conversation where residents from across the city learned about our Housing Framework for Equity and Growth, an initiative led by the Office of Planning and Department of Housing and Community Development to help advance the goal of achieving 36,000 units of housing by 2025, with 12,000 of those units affordable to low-income residents. We facilitated small group conversations with residents, heard from the Directors of the Office of Planning, Department of Housing and Community Development, and Department of Health on the importance of housing, and shared the results from our 2019 summer engagement.
