Virginia women were elected to the legislature in record numbers, but has the #MeToo reckoning reached the state house?
More than 12,000 households in D.C. — and two million nationwide — depend on federal subsidies to help them make rent in our expensive urban neighborhoods. But the subsidy voucher system has long come under fire for both keeping poor tenants stuck in low-income neighborhoods and padding the pockets of landlords. Under a new rule proposed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development however, subsidy rates could change to more accurately reflect cost of housing by zip code, rather than by metro area. We explore how changing rent subsidies could impact upward mobility for families, and what it means for tenants and property owners in our region.
