DC Program and Financial Modeling

In December 2004, the District adopted the “Homeless No More Plan” designed to improve the quality of life for all residents of the District by preventing and ending homelessness within 10 years. The “Homeless No More Plan” recommends the creation of 6,000 new units of affordable housing; 2,000 of these unites dedicated as permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless individuals and 500 dedicated to permanent supportive housing for families with long histories of homelessness.

The Office City Administrator (OCA) engaged CSH to develop recommendations for the District’s chronically homeless permanent supportive housing unit generation plan.

CSH's Role

CSH developed a financial model and program plan for the District, which was adopted by Mayor Adrian Fenty as the District’s Permanent Supportive Housing Unit Generation Plan and serves as the foundation for creating and funding new PSH units. These units have primarily been generated through scattered site but the District recognizes the importance of production and has made a commitment to dedicating resources to construction.

Next Steps

In early 2012, CSH will be working with OCA to update the plan and the create new recommendations for treating the District’s chronically homeless.
