DC continues to make good progress towards meeting Mayor Muriel Bowser's goal of producing 36,000 new housing units by 2025.
Approximately 30,000 units delivered between January 2019 and August 2023, per the latest data available on the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) dashboard. This represents 84% of the desired total.
Of the units produced, approximately 8,000 are affordable, about 67% of the goal for affordable housing production. Under the current framework, any units that cost no more than 30 percent of household income for households earning up to 80 percent of median family income count toward "affordable housing”.
A report released in 2019 further specified affordable housing production goals for each of the city's ten planning areas. The graphic above details where those areas are with progress towards housing production.
