Heirs Property Assistance Program

In her Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 budget, Mayor Bowser proposed the establishment of an Heirs Property Assistance Program to individuals and families in maintaining their family property after the original homeowner passes. The program will provide grants to low-income individuals to pay for legal and other services to assist in obtaining clear legal title to inherited property.

DHCD released a Request for Information about how to implement this program on October 21, 2022.

Based on the feedback the agency received, it released a Request for Applications to implement and operate this program on February 15, 2023. Completed applications must be submitted electronically on or before April 3, 2023.

The RFI and RFA can be accessed below.

Once the selection process is complete, information will appear on this page explaining how District residents can utilize these services.
