The D.C. Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) Director Polly Donaldson announced yesterday that the agency is accepting proposals to produce and preserve affordable housing. The official announcement of the Consolidated Request for Proposals (RFP) was published in the March 25, 2016 issue of the D.C. Register. The RFP was released on March 31, 2016. Applicants must submit their proposals online via the electronic application portal before the June 6, 2016 deadline. The release of this new RFP underscores the Bowser Administration’s commitment to affordable housing, which is reflected in the request for $100 million in new revenue for the Housing Production Trust Fund (HPTF) in the FY 2017 budget.
