Mayor Bowser to Celebrate Housing Preservation Fund Milestone at Worthington Woods in Ward 8

Thursday, July 11, 2019

(Washington, DC) – On Friday, July 12, at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will mark the preservation of the Worthington Woods Apartments in the Congress Heights neighborhood and celebrate the 1,000th unit funded by her Housing Preservation Fund.

Worthington Woods is a 394-unit apartment community that serves households earning less than 60 percent of the Medium Family Income (MFI). The Worthington Woods Tenant Association assigned their rights through the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA) to Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP) in exchange for a commitment to preserve the property as affordable and not displace any of the tenants. MHP acquired the property with assistance from the Housing Preservation Fund.
