We Work To
Protect and Expand the Supply of Affordable Housing
We prevent displacement, foster wealth-building among residents, and support new construction.
Modernize Affordable Housing Finance
We create a balanced system that preserves existing affordable housing and promotes racially equitable outcomes.
Advance Equitable Climate Benefits
We enable all people to enjoy the health, economic, and environmental advantages of resilient and sustainable homes.
We work with colleagues in development, lending, and resident services to bring a comprehensive, resident-led, solutions-oriented lens to the challenges facing affordable housing and the people it serves. Our policy-informed solutions support communities throughout the DC area and across the country through grant-funded efforts as well as fee-for-service work. We also advise state and federal agencies on how to design and implement programs and we work with our colleagues on applying our insights, research and best practices to deliver the most sustainable and community-building outcomes for people and the planet.
