Housing Investment Platform

The Housing Investment Platform (HIP) is a single family investment program designed to create more affordable housing throughout the District of Columbia. DCHFA is partnering with developers to provide affordability in exchange for a lower preferred return hurdle.

The goal of the HIP is to invest in real estate transactions that produce for sale houses, condos, and townhomes for people in the 60-120% median income range.
