(Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Bowser released her 54 Month Progress Report. The report delivers on the Mayor’s commitment to transparency and accountability and provides a comprehensive summary of the Bowser Administration’s progress.

“The past 54 months have been memorable and we have many triumphant moments to look back on. But our work is not done,” said Mayor Bowser. “As a community, we should feel motivated by the progress we have already made and optimistic that the best is yet to come.”

The 54 Month Progress Report is broken down into sections on housing, jobs, opportunities at every stage of life, public safety and justice, resiliency, and amenities across all eight wards.
