Fairfax County Chairman Descends Crystal City Hotel to Raise Awareness for Homelessness and Housing
Days after announcing a partnership deal that will deliver the largest fully committed affordable housing community in Tysons, Fairfax County Chairman Jeffrey C. McKay descended the Hilton Crystal City to support New Hope Housing’s work to end homelessness and ensure that families have access to safe, secure, and affordable housing.
“This event spotlights and raises needed funds for their efforts to turn ‘hope into home,’” said Chairman McKay “In Fairfax County, we are working nonstop to build affordable housing throughout the county, and we value the work of our non-profit partners to help realize our vision of access to housing for all, regardless of income. Affordable housing equals jobs and that not only leads to economic benefits for everyone, it establishes a foundation for generational success moving forward. Fairfax County is proud to be at the forefront of this vital effort.”
Just a few days prior, Fairfax County, along with several partners including the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing and Amazon, announced plans for a 500+ unit affordable housing complex and community center in Tysons, bringing the total of affordable units either built, under construction, or in the pipeline to 3,000 since 2019. The county will construct at least 10,000 net affordable units by 2034.
