FY20 Budget Testimony: DCRA

March 27, 2019

CLC attorney Anne Cunningham recently testified at DCRA’s budget hearing. Over the past year and a half, Anne has testified nine times regarding DCRA and the impact the agency’s failures have on the low-income families who CLC represents. Her past testimonies contain detailed criticisms and concerns about DCRA, including that DCRA generally lacks a culture of protecting tenants and rental housing, that DCRA’s approach to housing inspections and enforcement is neither strategic nor efficient, and that DCRA’s inspections and enforcement regime is under-staffed and under-resourced. In this testimony, she outlined a list of budget-related recommendations along the lines of these recurring themes. You can read the full testimony here.
