Urban–Greater DC   (Washington, D.C.)

The District of Columbia lacks a formal policy and strategy for preserving existing affordable rental housing. This paper, drafted by members of the DCPN Preservation Strategy Working Group is intended to address that need. It proposes a preservation policy for the city as well as criteria for prioritizing preservation actions and tools that can be used for preserving different types of housing.
