Testimony: Public Oversight Roundtable, Performance of the District of Columbia Housing Authority
Makenna Osborn, Policy Attorney, testified at the Commitee on Housing’s Public Oversight Roundtable on the performance of District of Columbia Housing Authority. She provides recommendations and suggestions that we hope improves conditions in DC Public Housing, a more timely and reliable repair process, and how to best mitigate administrative delays that hinder voucher utilization.
It’s Time for Healthier and Safer Housing for all DC Residents
When a child lives in unhealthy housing, they are more likely to end up in the ER because their poor housing conditions trigger health issues like asthma. That’s why Children’s Law Center partners with organizations across the city to advocate for healthier housing so that all DC children have the safe housing they need to live healthy lives.
