Ninth Annual DC Housing Expo and Home Show

Eighth Annual DC Housing Expo and Home Show

Save the Date: Saturday, June 24, 2017, 10 am - 3 pm, Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Mark your calendars now for the 9th Annual DC Housing Expo and Home Show, hosted by the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). 

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.

Packed with Information for Current and Future Residents, and Small Businesses
The Expo provides invaluable information and guidance for:

  • Homeowners: Remodeling and repair demonstrations
  • Homebuyers: Purchasing assistance resources 
  • Tenants: Knowing your rights 
  • Seniors: Aging in place planning
  • Youth: Financial literacy training
  • Small Businesses: How to start and successfully grow a business

Also offered are FREE credit reports and credit counseling, as well as prizes and giveaways. 

In addition, you have access to more than a dozen workshops and over 150 exhibitors—including government agencies, nonprofit community organizations, lenders and realtors. 

In essence, the Expo is a ONE STOP SHOP for all the resources you are looking for related to housing and community development.

Registration Is Still Open
