C100 Testimony DC Council Performance Oversight Hearings Committee On Housing

Andrea Rosen, Nancy MacWood, Meg Maguire

C100 is concerned that the Administration’s competing affordable housing policy interests have led in effect to a reduction in DC's rent-stabilized housing inventory, which contravenes the purposes of the Rent Stabilization Act. This is an undesirable outcome for households whose earnings are too high to qualify for housing subsidies but too low to compete for market-rate apartments in the District of Columbia.
