The DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) are building on ongoing initiatives to develop a comprehensive strategy to address housing challenges in the Ivy City and Trinidad neighborhoods.

Through a market-driven, community-led approach, the Ivy City and Trinidad Neighborhood Stabilization Initiative will examine how DHCD’s housing investment can be leveraged to further three primary goals:

  • Improved Access to Decent, Affordable Housing
  • Increased Commercial Development and Employment Opportunities; and
  • A Comprehensive Vision for Community Redevelopment.

Recommendations developed through this initiative will honor the District of Columbia’s stated vision for:

  • Green and Sustainable Development Practices;
  • Shared Social and Economic Prosperity;
  • Quality Environments and Access to Nature;
  • Distinctive Neighborhoods and Districts;
  • Multiple Transportation Options, including Transit; and
  • Walkable Communities

To be successful, we need community leaders, residents, and business owners to help shape the process. Community involvement is essential to achieving the above-stated goals and developing effective strategies. Please click here to read more about opportunities for involvement.

This initiative is funded through Round II of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
