DC Vacancy Survey
VACANT TO VIRUS REDUCTION PLAN (V2VR)
COVID-19 spreads rapidly. People in communal homeless shelters and congregate detention facilities are at grave risk. DC should house these people in the District's 10,000 vacant units.
You (residents and former residents) can help us take inventory of the vacant units in your own buildings and neighborhoods by filling out the survey below.
There is an acute need to give people physical space in order to properly social distance and reduce transmission of COVID-19. There has been an acute need to house people in the nation’s capital – a place with one of the highest per capita rates of homelessness in the country.
In January 2020, 6,380 people were counted as homeless on one given night during the annual point in time count, though that number is low: In the 2018-2019 school year, 7,728 different elementary and secondary education students in DC identified as experiencing homelessness.
As of November 23, 2020, Department of Human Services reports:
Total Number of Positive Cases of People Who Were in Shelter: 357
Total Number of Rooms Occupied: 94
Of Total Rooms Occupied, Total Number from Shelters: 62
Total Number of Lives Lost Among Individuals in the Homeless Service System: 21
