Housing Insecurity in the District of Columbia

The Community Partnership collaborated with the Urban Institute on new research that finds an estimated 12 percent of DC residents experience housing insecurity. Black residents experience insecurity at a higher rate than any other racial group, with Black residents ages 15 and older making up an estimated 68 percent of the housing-insecure population. Additionally, 42 percent of those experiencing housing insecurity live in Wards 7 and 8.

The researchers find that services designed to address housing insecurity should be targeted in a way that better reaches disproportionately affected groups, including Black and Hispanic residents, households with children, and residents in Wards 7 and 8.
