Expanding affordable housing and economic opportunities in NW DC

Announcing our proposal for the Affordable Housing Property Acquisition Fund

The Affordable Housing Property Acquisition Fund (the “Fund”) is a financing program to enable qualified mission-driven affordable housing developers to move quickly to acquire non-residential public-purposed property to add significant amounts of new permanently affordable housing in Rock Creek West, Rock Creek East, Capitol Hill and Upper Northeast

About Us

NW Opportunity Partners Community Development Corporation (NWOP CDC) is a not-for-profit corporation formed by committed affordable housing advocates who first came together in January 2021.  Having  embraced the Mayor’s goal of creating 1,990 units of affordable housing in Rock Creek West by 2025, we knew that we needed to couple bold advocacy with funding to reframe the affordable housing narrative and help people visualize alternative development scenarios.

Planning Tools

Ward 3, and the larger Rock Creek West Planning Area, will experience substantial new development over the next 5-10 years.  NW Opportunity Partners is committed to robust public participation both of current and future residents/businesses in local planning to achieve significant affordable housing and commercial revitalization. 

This section of our web site provides a quick orientation to the Ward and links to planning tools and other resources that are basic to meaningful collaboration and win-win outcomes.
