Join us: July 15 Special Briefing on New Study on Housing Security in the Washington Region
The Community Foundation For The National Capital Region Invites You To Join Us For The Release Of A Landmark New Study, Housing Security In The Washington Region.
The Community Foundation, with generous support from The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, commissioned a study of housing needs and affordability in the Washington Region. The study, prepared by the Urban Institute and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, examines the entire continuum of housing, from the emergency shelter system to affordable homeownership opportunities; and provides a regional perspective on a challenge that crosses jurisdictional borders.
The event will include two sessions – a public briefing on the study, followed by a private briefing for funders, co-sponsored by The Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers.
