Mayor Muriel Bowser’s administration made a promise to tackle the problem of affordable housing early on in their time guiding our nation’s capitol. Another sign that affordable housing issues are being taken very seriously has recently come to light with the crafting of a financing package to bring online a small building of apartment units for low-income tenants.
- St. Stephens Apartment will offer 71 one- and two-bedroom units.
- The building will also feature amenities such as a green roof, community space, and access to supportive services.
- Twenty-five percent of the units will go to those who make about $37,000 per year or less.
