This week DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced HAND member Victory Housing and Brinshore Development to lead the redevelopment of Hebrew Home in the Petworth neighborhood. Additionally, HAND member and sponsor Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners will serve as the architect. The site is a historic landmark that was constructed in 1925. The project will include 88 senior affordable housing units in the refurbished Hebrew House, another 91 rentals in a newly constructed adjacent building (of which 66% of the units will be affordable) and eight for-sale homes. The undertaking will be financed by Bank of America. You can read the full story here.
CohnReznick’s Annual Affordable Housing Conference brings together the leading developers (not-for-profit and for-profit), investors, and agencies/housing authorities active in providing affordable housing throughout the country. The convening will showcase and educate attendees on successful projects that expand beyond the traditional housing model through tax credit financing. Innovative connections, such as with healthcare, can help strengthen and uplift housing efforts. It is within that spirit of new opportunities that this year’s conference will focus.
Primary areas of discussion will include the intersection of housing and healthcare including the success it is having when developers partner with hospitals and healthcare providers. The successes of supportive services, such as education in addition to healthcare, will be highlighted in addition to other business aspects developers and investors are facing in affordable housing, the LIHTC program, and the future of housing in America.

On April 22, 2017 volunteers from Generation HAND, the NHP Foundation and GRID Alternatives joined forces for its first ever “Lending a HAND Community Day” to install solar panels at the Parkchester Apartment complex in Washington D.C.
The installation of these panels come at no cost to residents and provide savings on energy spending. Additionally, Parkchester Apartments is the first multi-family housing installment that GRID Alternatives is undertaking in the Mid-Atlantic region, which will provide a long-term solution to high energy bills.
“HAND is thrilled to partner with our member, NHPF, and GRID Alternatives,” said HAND’s Executive Director Heather Raspberry. “For our members, this activity is more than just a volunteer opportunity, but a reminder of the importance of the work that we do to ensure individuals and families across our region have healthy and sustainable housing that is also affordable.”
