D.C. affordable housing landlords see more tenants struggling to pay rent as pandemic drags on

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Affordable housing landlords in the District say more requests for rent relief are coming in and they expect operating expenses to increase as the pandemic drags on, according to a new survey conducted by city officials.

D.C.’s Department of Housing and Community Development found that 56% of respondents saw either “large” or “modest” increases in tenants asking for a break on rent in May compared with April. The 50 owners, developers and managers — who were surveyed between June 3 and July 1 — control a total of 81 properties around D.C.
