Community Impact

DCHE’s NMTC program is a valuable economic resource that has created over 1000 construction and permanent jobs with over 150 jobs set-aside for DCHA residents. Workforce and employment training opportunities will serve up to 4000 students and Project Sponsors work closely with Office of Resident Services to ensure that DCHA residents have direct access to the training programs financed with NMTC’s.

As an affordable housing provider, we invest in projects that create and attract quality real estate and operating businesses. Our goal with each investment is to help spur economic growth so low-income residents will have improved access to an array of goods and services that are essential to promoting strong and vibrant communities.

DCHE investments support:

  • - Living Wage Jobs for low-income persons
  • - Educational and Skill Training Programs
  • - Economic vitality and commerce in underserved communities
