The DMV has one of the nation's highest rates of unhoused residents. The pandemic exacerbated the long-standing regional affordable housing crisis that displaces and forces many families and individuals to struggle and be housing insecure. Generations of systemic housing discrimination through redlining, racialized zoning and covenants, subprime mortgages, and disinvestment in black and brown communities coupled with high housing costs and limited affordable housing stock have been significant drivers in housing instability. The region has the financial resources and policies to move the needle; however, addressing the housing affordability crisis will require a radically new integrated vision and approach to achieve racial and economic housing equity. An approach rooted in accountability, equity, and alignment of public, private, and social sectors that all have a role in addressing this challenge. HAND created a one-of-a-kind platform, the Housing Indicator Toolkit (HIT), to hold all of us accountable for the latest information on housing production across the region and comparison with established local housing targets. Additionally, the HIT underscores the policies and investments jurisdictions must have in their toolkit if they want to be successful in meeting their respective targets. Join us for a conversation on how government, philanthropy, and private sector partners can collaborate to meet established regional housing goals through shared responsibility and accountability.
