A lack of affordable housing is one of the biggest complaints in the DMV. On Wednesday Prince George’s County broke ground to address just that in New Carrolton, Maryland. The people who will benefit in particular, are essential workers.
“It’s hard to save money when you don’t have a stable place to call home. It’s hard to feel truly invested as well in a community when you don’t feel like you’re a secure part,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.
That’s expected to change in the next two years with a new affordable apartment complex coming to New Carrolton.
“A community is not just about one group of people, it is about making sure that everyone can find a place in that community. That’s what’s important,” said Danielle Glaros, Prince George’s County County Council member for District 3.
