Take a moment to thank your Councilmembers if they made an effort to fund affordable housing so far this budget, and ask them if they can find a way to do more to #FindTheMoney to #PutPeopleFirst before the second vote!
On May 14, 2019, the DC Council will take its first vote on the budget. Join us before then to tell the DC Council that they must #FindTheMoney to #PutPeopleFirst!
Here’s our initial take on what Mayor Bowser’s proposed budget does for affordable housing.
Add your voice to those calling for a racially and economically just DC budget this year, and follow #PutPeopleFirst on Twitter for updates as this important work moves forward!
It is important that, when developing its options for resolving this crisis, that the DC Housing Authority consider the important and distinct role that public housing plays in DC’s housing ecosystem.
We reflect on the fact that closing DC General was never the only, or even the most important, promise Mayor Bowser made to families experiencing homelessness. Only when all DC families have safe and secure housing will DC have ended family homelessness.
