On Saturday, June 1, 2013, the Mayor and DHCD hosted the Fifth Annual DC Housing Expo at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The event amassed approximately 2,000 attendees, including DC Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, who visited workshops and over 75 exhibitors to learn about the various housing resources available to DC residents, and some even began preparing for homeownership.
The event climaxed with the DHCD Housing Lottery, which resulted in DC residents Christina Brown and George Adeoye-Jumbo being selected to purchase two newly renovated homes at 50% of the current appraised value.
Thank You for making the 5th Annual DC Housing Expo our best ever! And the winners of the house lotteries are DC residents: Christina Brown and George Adeoye-Jumbo. Congratulations and welcome home!
