To be the District of Columbia’s principal catalyst for housing finance and neighborhood investment.
Who We Are
DC Housing Finance Agency is a uniquely created and organized financial intermediary and administrator of affordable housing programs and resources for the District of Columbia.
Through its Multifamily Lending and Neighborhood Investment and Capital Markets divisions, DCHFA issues tax-exempt mortgage revenue bonds to lower the developers’ costs of acquiring, constructing and rehabilitating rental housing. The Agency offers private for-profit and non-profit developers low-cost predevelopment, construction and permanent financing that supports the new construction, acquisition, and rehabilitation of affordable rental housing in the District.
DCHFA’s Single Family Programs division manages all of the Agency’s homeownership programs with the goal of expanding and retaining homeownership opportunities in the District through the DC Open Doors mortgage loan programs, down payment assistance loans, the Mortgage Credit Certificate program, the co-administration of the Home Purchase Assistance Program and the Reverse Mortgage Insurance and Tax Payment Program (ReMIT).
To advance the District of Columbia’s housing priorities, the agency invests in affordable housing and neighborhood development, which provides pathways for DC residents to transform their lives.
We achieve this by delivering the most efficient and effective sources of capital available in the market to finance rental housing and to create homeownership opportunities.
