Mayor and City Council

WAMU: Bowser says $100 million for affordable housing is ‘historic.’ But is it enough? “Speaking at a groundbreaking last week, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser drew cheers from the crowd when she made a big announcement: During the 2016 fiscal year, which ended in September, the city had spent $106 million on affordable housing. That $106 million came from the Housing Production Trust Fund, and is helping build or preserve 1,200 units of affordable housing throughout the city. The money comes from Bowser’s pledge to put $100 million each year into the HPTF, which draws in part from deed and recordation taxes and gets the rest of its funding from money directly appropriated by the mayor and D.C. Council.”
