DHCD's Development Finance Division provides funding to assist with the development of community and commercial facilities that serve District of Columbia neighborhoods. These facilities include community office buildings, clinics, day care centers and recreation centers.
Community Facilities are typically funded through DHCD's competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process. RFPs are released as funding is available. DHCD has funded numerous community facilities throughout the District, including The Town Hall Educational Arts Cultural Facility (THE ARC) in Ward 8, the Atlas Theater in Ward 6, the Dance Institute of Washington in Ward 1, and others.
