This groundbreaking follows the recent announcement of a $51 million affordable housing investment in Ward 8 through the Housing Protection Trust Fund (HPTF) and other funding sources for fiscal year 2019.

Since coming into office, Mayor Bowser has consistently exceeded her annual commitment of $100 million into the HPTF, increasing investments from $58.6 million in FY15 to $106.89 million in FY16 to $138.59 million in FY17 to $167.6 million in FY18. This funding provides gap financing for projects affordable to low and moderate income households. As a result, the Bowser Administration has been able to use multiple programs and tools to deliver 6,000 units of affordable housing, with an additional 5,200 under construction.
