36,000 Housing Count

The purpose of this site is to track housing production in support of the Mayor’s goal of producing 36,000 new housing units and 12,000 affordable units by 2025. The dashboard below is updated monthly to reflect the total new housing units and new affordable units created each month. For more information on this target and an overview of how the District is working to achieve this goal, please visit

Note: In order to more fully capture the District’s efforts to create new, dedicated affordable housing units and to better align with agency housing goals and strategies the unit tracking methodology was updated in September 2022, which is now used for each monthly update. You can read more about this update in the attached document.

Note: The September 2022 housing count included an update to the housing count methodology to incorporate 1) projects that create New Affordable Units by placing covenants on existing housing units without an affordability covenant and 2) projects funded through the Housing Preservation Fund that include New Affordable Units.

These changes bring the affordable unit count into alignment with goals and strategies stated in the Housing Equity Report and the 2021 DHCD Consolidated RFP for Affordable Housing Projects. You can read more about this update in the attached document.


Glossary of Terms

  • A glossary term

    To add glossary terms, edit the glossary.yaml file in the _data folder.

  • Another term

    Glossary terms need a term, slug, and definition attribute. The term attribute will appear above the definition. The slug is a unique identifier for the term. It should be lowercase, with no special characters or punctuation, and any spaces replaced with a dash.

  • Yet another term

    Want to link to a specific glossary term in your text, like this one here? You will need to edit your markdown like so:

    [this one here](#glossary){:define="yet-another-term"}

    Just place the text you want linked in the brackets and the correct slug within the quotes.
