A leader in affordable housing

Housing Up is recognized as a leading nonprofit affordable housing developer in the District of Columbia. Since 2010, we have developed or preserved 542 units of housing for low-income families, all of whom have incomes below 60% of the area median income (AMI). We currently have 445 units in our development pipeline.

In addition to our current portfolio, we plan to add several hundred units of affordable housing to DC’s housing stock over the next few years. We are committed to building safe, vibrant communities by providing mixed-income affordable housing with resident services.

Our Portfolio

Washington, DC grows by thousands of residents annually, creating a great need
to maintain and expand housing options for low- to moderate-income and at-risk

Housing Up has developed several multi-family projects showcasing our ability to structure complicated transactions that involve multiple layers of financing, including SAFI, LIHTCs, Historic Tax Credits, private and supportive housing finance sources, HPTF, HUD CDBG and operating funds, LRSP, DBH grants, energy initiative incentive programs and fundraising additional grants to fill the gaps. Currently, we have nine properties in our portfolio and work on adding new properties to our roster every year to increase the District’s affordable housing stock. Download the property map of our locations:

Partner Arms III*

Partner Arms III (PA3) provides 13 units of transitional housing to homeless families. As affordable housing has become increasingly scarce in the District, we have recognized the importance of permanent housing as the most effective way to end chronic family homelessness. Our focus, in alignment with DC and federal government strategic plans, has shifted away from transitional housing to more permanent housing solutions. We plan to convert our current transitional housing property to permanent supportive housing programs, to better serve families experiencing homelessness.

*Partner Arms III is owned by the DC Department of Human Services. Housing Up has provided services at the location since 2008.
