D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently joined U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro and U.S. Secretary of Veteran Affairs Robert McDonald to open the John and Jill Ker Conway Residence at North Capitol Commons.

With support from local and federal partners, the new 14-story high-rise housing program in Northeast will advance the goal of ending homelessness among veterans in D.C.

The Conway Residence includes 60 units of permanent supportive housing for veterans experiencing homelessness and 64 units for District residents who meet the income requirements for affordability.
