To track affordable rental housing in the District of Columbia, the D.C. Preservation Network will create an online tool.
By combining federal and local data on subsidized housing with on-the-ground information about individual buildings from D.C. agencies, advocates and residents, it will enable information sharing and real-time collaboration on the affordability of specific buildings. Nonprofit housing advocacy organizations will use the information to focus tenant organizing and landlord outreach to properties most at risk.
