DCHA Rent Supplement Act of 2006

Testimony to the D.C. City Council on Bill 16-661
March 22, 2006

Abstract

The most recent data show a strong need for additional rental assistance in the District of Columbia, and years of experience around the country have demonstrated that a rent supplement program, such as the one the Council is considering, can be an effective means to provide such assistance. Research also shows that a number of other supports, such as tenant mobility counseling and landlord outreach, are essential in ensuring that such a program achieves its full potential.
