WATCH $224 MILLION FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING!
Background: “15,000 people are on a waiting list for about 500 housing vouchers that become available in a given year. The list has been closed for almost two years. Most of the applicants have household incomes of $40,000 to $50,000 (2010, Washington Post).” From 2003-2005, the county lost 25% of affordable rental stock, 11,591 units. This has led to the exile of our children, parents, grandparents, and neighbors. (Affordable is defined as units with gross rents under $999 per month. National Housing Trust Foundation).
