This Tuesday, the D.C. Preservation Catalog launched to the public with over 39,000 assisted housing units mapped. The database offers property names, locations, and data like expiration dates and the number of income-restricted units for each property.
According to the NeighborhoodInfo D.C. website, the Catalog will benefit agencies, non-profits, and affordable housing developers as they develop strategies to preserve affordable housing for low-income residents.
The database was initially developed by the National Low Income Housing Coalition and is maintained by NeighborhoodInfo D.C. and the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development. The information is drawn from national and local administrative data sources as well as the D.C. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The public launch is part of Community Development Week 2016.
