The mission of MANNA, Inc. is to help low- and moderate-income persons acquire quality housing, build assets for families through homeownership, revitalize distressed neighborhoods, and preserve racial and ethnic diversity. This group is meant to spread this mission and message to young professionals in our nation's capital who may not be aware of the housing issues facing the DC population.
MANNA is hosting a Housing Fair and Town Hall on Saturday, May 11th from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM. The first two hours of the program will consist of resource tables and workshops on a variety of subjects including:
-legal estate planning
-down payment assistance
-DC property tax programs
-housing assistance programs (including NeighborhoodLIFT)
-Mayor Bowser's housing budget proposal
The Town Hall (from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM) will include hearing guest speakers discuss housing issues, upcoming advocacy opportunities, and time allotted for DC residents to discuss housing programs/issues/topics that matter to them.
Childcare and Spanish translation services are provided!

On Saturday, June 15th at 9:00 AM, we will be celebrating our 21st Annual MANNA 5K Race for Affordable Housing at the Alexandria Aqueduct on the C&O Towpath in Georgetown (address is 3630 Water St NW). Our goal is to raise money and awareness for affordable housing in the District. Please come and support affordable housing in DC while enjoying the historic canal, getting some exercise, and meeting fellow supporters of MANNA.
The pet- and stroller-friendly 5K will cover an out-and-back route overlooking the historic canal and Georgetown neighborhood. The trail is flat and will feature a water station on the course and one at the start/finish.
