DCLT plans to steadily expand our capacity to preserve and sustain affordable housing in the years to come.


DCLT’s Five-Year goals for the years 2016-2021 are as follows:
  1. Focus on preservation of affordable housing.
  2. Make capital and energy-efficient improvements to sustain a new generation of useful life in DCLT apartments that have been last renovated over 20 years ago.
  3. Expand rental housing development and acquire and preserve multi-family properties, targeting those with expiring income and rent restrictions.
  4. Advocate for permanently affordable housing, especially in neighborhoods with transit services, and other public services and facilities.
  5. Plan for sustaining and increasing operating capacity for the organization to include fundraising and developing new financing partnerships.
