  • Manager, Landlord Partnership Fund

    Background

    Company Overview

    The Coalition for Nonprofit Housing & Economic Development (CNHED) is a 501(c)(3) association for the nonprofit affordable housing and community economic development sector in the District of Columbia, with more than 180 organizational members. CNHED’s mission is to advance community development solutions that address the inequity of under-resourced communities in the District of Columbia. CNHED’s strength is in its convening power, highly successful advocacy, robust communications and information sharing, and equipping its members with tools and resources for their work. CNHED’s organizational members include nonprofit and for-profit affordable housing developers, housing counseling and service agencies, community economic development organizations, workforce and business development entities, lenders, intermediaries, and government agencies.

    Program Overview

    CNHED partnered with the District of Columbia and the Downtown Business Improvement District to establish the DC Landlord Partnership Fund to encourage landlords to rent to households with histories of homelessness.  The LPF reimburses District landlords who rent to families or individuals exiting homelessness and have rental assistance through a Department of Human Services (DHS) program for adverse rental costs associated with registered units.  CNHED manages and administers the LPF and is supported by donations from business and philanthropic organizations.

  • Research and Development VISTA

Additionally, there is no comprehensive database tracking properties for which TOPA notices were filed and the details regarding its subsequent sale. CNHED’s Research & Development VISTA will be tasked with creating and executing a study looking at the impacts and effectiveness of TOPA as a tool to preserve affordable rental housing, provide opportunities for homeownership for low-income tenants, minimize displacement of existing tenants, and encourage the formation of Tenant Organizations and strengthen the bargaining position of tenants.
