What is Affordable Housing?


Manna’s Housing Advocacy Team presents “What is Affordable Housing?” This film explores a mix of views on and experiences with affordable housing in Washington, DC, and tends to be heavy on homeownership, which is one type of housing along the continuum of affordable housing. Those interviewed include college students, native Washingtonians, renters, homeowners, lenders, housing developers, realtors and more. We hope as you watch it that you see the ways we are all connected to this issue.
