    Housing choice vouchers welcome? How much does that give you these days? Or were they just saying that to be snarky?

      My exact thought, who on a housing voucher can afford over 3k for two bedrooms? I think the amount varies with number of people/bedrooms but still.

      Actually a 2 bedroom voucher in Capitol Hill gets you up to $1970 (http://www.dchousing.org/rent_hcvp.aspx). However, say somebody has a 4 bedroom voucher (which covers up to $3313) and for some reason wants to use it on a 2 bedroom unit, they could correctly apply it to this property. Due to fair housing laws, technically everybody “needs” to accept housing vouchers. However realistically, they never really apply in higher end and more expensive neighborhoods.

      It’s really more about how you use it than sheer size, no?
