DC is on pace to meet Mayor Muriel Bowser's goal of producing 36,000 new housing units by next month.

Approximately 35,670 units delivered in the city between January 2019 and June 2024, per the latest data available on the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) dashboard. This represents 99% of the total for the mayor's housing production plan pitched five years ago. Given the production pace of the last few months, the 36,000 goal should be reached by the end of July.

Of the units produced so far, approximately 9,771 are affordable, 81% 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.
