On November 16, rules will be published in the D.C. Register implementing the District Opportunity to Purchase Act (DOPA), which requires rental property owners to provide the District with the opportunity to purchase housing accommodations consisting of five or more rental units, as long as at least 25 percent are deemed affordable. The final rules provide that the Mayor may assign the District’s purchase right to a developer. DHCD is issuing a request for qualifications (RFQ) to identify a pool of pre-qualified developers for the possible assignment of DOPA rights. See the RFQ below for application details and deadlines.
Please upload response documents for the RFQ
