Housing in Downtown (HID) Program 

DC’s Comeback Plan, released January 9, 2023, focuses on retaining and growing DC’s tax base, supporting business vitality, strengthening neighborhoods, and supporting economic mobility of DC residents. The plan includes action to transform Downtown into a lively, mixed-used urban center and introduces a new goal of bringing 15,000 new residents to Downtown by 2028.  

The Fiscal Year 2024 Budget includes an updated Housing in Downtown program, which was informed by extensive stakeholder engagement. Additional technical amendments to the statute were adopted through emergency legislation in early January 2024 to allow for the effective administration of the program. The draft regulations and Request for Applications (RFA) are targeted for release in the first quarter of 2024. The details of this program can be found in the slide deck shared below.
