The District of Columbia Housing Authority Board of Commissioners approved the allocation of local funding to subsidize more than 100 units of affordable housing in partnership with multiple District of Columbia agencies.

The board approved Local Rent Supplement Program funding will provide operating subsidy for 106 units in seven construction projects throughout D.C. that will contain a total of 585 affordable rental units. The projects were selected through the Fiscal Year 2018 Consolidated Request for Proposals for Affordable Housing Projects. The Consolidated RFP brings together capital, rental assistance, and supportive service dollars together through a single application process for developers.

“We are proud to partner with Mayor Bowser and the Department of Housing and Community Development to create and preserve affordable housing,” said DCHA Executive Director Tyrone Garrett. “The operating subsidy we are providing will provide long-term support for extremely low-income residents who will be able to call the District home.”

These construction projects will preserve or create affordable housing and utilize funding from the Housing Production Trust Fund, Low Income Housing Tax Credits, and Local Rent Supplement Program, in addition to other public and private funds.

The projects are Anna Cooper House, 1338 R Street, N.W.; Randle Hill Apartments, 3300-3368 6th Street, S.E.; Spring Flats Senior, 1125 Spring Road, N.W.; 1100 Eastern Avenue, 1102 Eastern Avenue, N.E.; 3500 E. Capitol Street - Phase 2, 3500 East Capitol Street, N.E.; Hanover Court Apartments, 2400-2412 Hartford Street, S.E.; and Mary's House, 401 Anacostia Road, S.E.
