Inclusionary Zoning Orientation

Virtual Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) Orientation: Introduction to the IZ Program for buyers and renters in the District of Columbia

Interested in buying or renting a home but don’t know if you can?

This orientation provides an introduction to the IZ program that the District of Columbia designed for income eligible households to purchase or rent at below market prices in DC.  Inclusionary Zoning is a law that requires developers to set aside a certain number of units for low-to moderate- income households. Participants will receive their Inclusionary Zoning Certificate after successful completion of this 2 hour orientation and once attendance is confirmed. The IZ Certificate will be valid for 2 years and will give participants an opportunity to enter the Inclusionary Zoning Lottery or renew an existing certificate.

You will also learn how your credit history, personal budget, and personal finances may affect your future success. LEDC invites different experts including a loan officer, home inspector, real estate agent, and insurance agent to explain the different areas of the home-buying process.

This class meets the requirements of government and lender programs that require first-time homebuyer training.
