In Mayor Muriel Bower’s State of the District Address, she announced an additional $55 in spending in programs to create or preserve affordable housing. “We are very focused on housing,” Bowser told the council during a budget presentation. “What we heard from residents across the city is that is the most significant pinch point.” The budget proposal also includes $26 million for the city’s plan to end homelessness, which would fund 260 new units for families, 345 new units for single adults and 68 new units for youth.
