Organizing to win systemic improvements to public housing, a critical form of affordable housing that serves thousands of DC's lowest income residents.
Empower DC is committed to improving and preserving DC's public housing which is a vital lifeline for thousands of our lowest income residents. Our work includes regular outreach within public housing communities and support for public housing residents who attend monthly DC Housing Authority Board meetings and DC Council oversight and budget hearings.
That work has led to investments of local money to support maintenance and repair of public housing. We work both citywide and on a property specific basis, continuing to support the Park Morton Resident Council as they go through the redevelopment process as well as the Barry Farm Tenant & Allies Association.
The DC Housing Authority has unveiled a plan to "reposition" 2,600 units of public housing over the next 10-14 years. The first properties to be targeted are: Benning Terrace, Fort Dupont/Stoddard Terrace, Fort Dupont Dwellings, Garfield Senior & Terrace, Langston Terrace & Additions and Richard Dwellings followed by Greenleaf Additions, Judiciary House, Kelly Miller Walk-Ups, Ledroit Apartments, Kelly Miller Townhomes and Woodland Terrace.
