A Celebration of Housing and Community Development
This all-day event celebrates “National Homeownership Month,” as promoted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Expo also has a District-centered theme of “June Housing Bloom,” which recognizes how the District produces and preserves affordable housing, spurs development in underserved communities and ensures that residents of all backgrounds can afford to live and thrive in the city.
New This Year: $5,000 Furniture Set Giveaway
Expo advertiser WHUR and Lillie’s Furniture Gallerie (LFG) are partnering to raffle a living room furniture set (sofa, chair, two tables, rug and two pillows). The furniture will be displayed on the main Expo stage. Raffle tickets will be at the LFG booth; the drawing will occur on the main stage around 2:30 p.m. The winner does not need to be present to win. LFG will work with the winner to arrange for furniture pick-up.
Packed with Information for Current and Future Residents, and Small Businesses
The Expo will offer over dozens of workshops and over 125 exhibitors—including government agencies, nonprofit community organizations, lenders and realtors. It will provide invaluable information and guidance for:

- Seniors: Aging in place planning
- Youth: Financial literacy training
