Housing Insights: A New Tool for Preserving Affordable Housing in Washington, DC

The Urban Institute, the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development (CNHED), Code for DC, and the DC Department of Housing and Community Development hosted an event for the release of the new Housing Insights website that will put better information in the hands of decisionmakers and advocates for affordable housing. Housing Insights will make it easy to browse a list of all subsidized affordable housing in DC, regardless of what subsidy program they are part of. And it will connect to relevant outside data, such as public transit, zoning, and neighborhood characteristics, to make it easy to consider all relevant factors when prioritizing and coordinating efforts to keep housing in DC affordable.

The release event will include a demonstration of the new Housing Insights website and a conversation with volunteers from the project.

  • Polly Donaldson, Director, DC Department of Housing and Community Development
  • Stephen Glaude, President and CEO, Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development
