Housing

LEDC offers housing services in two areas: Homeownership Counseling and Affordable Housing Preservation. Both programs are critical to helping our clients acquire and preserve their most critical asset, their housing.

Our Homeownership Counseling Program focuses on helping low to moderate income residents build their financial capability skills, establish or repair their credit, purchase their first home, or save their homes from foreclosure.

Our Affordable Housing Preservation Program focuses on ensuring DC tenants are aware of their rights as tenants and have the necessary leadership skills to organize to preserve their housing as affordable and improve their housing conditions, appropriately negotiate the purchase of their buildings, and have influence over housing policy decisions in the District.
