Statement to the DC Council, Joint Public Oversight Roundtable on Affordable Housing

Testimony before the Council of the District of Columbia, Committee on Housing and Urban Affairs and Committee on Public Services and Consumer Affairs
March 10, 2008

Abstract

This testimony discusses recent data, compiled by NeighborhoodInfo DC, on foreclosures and losses of Section 8 housing units in Washington, D.C. Foreclosures have almost doubled since 2005 and the city has lost close to 2,000 units of federally-subsidized housing since 2000. These developments exacerbate an already serious affordable housing shortage in the nation's capital.
