WAMU 88.5 Presents: What Would It Take To Fix The Housing Crisis?

UVA Darden Sands Family Grounds

Arlington, Virginia 22209

Renting in the Washington, D.C., region is costly, and, for many, buying a home seems impossible. With Amazon’s HQ2 on its way, it doesn’t look like prices are going to drop any time soon.

If you are paying more than 30% of your income, you’re considered “cost burdened.”But paying less than a third of your take-home pay isn’t easy here — even for people making well into the six figures.

There are a lot of ideas for how to fix this — build more housing … expand rent control … condense urban sprawl …. The Affordability Desk from WAMU 88.5 wants to put these ideas to the test. Join our team and a panel of experts for a community conversation about the solutions to fix the region’s housing affordability crisis.
