The DC Office of Planning (OP) is soliciting grant applications for a Historic Preservation Grant. With this grant, the District of Columbia seeks to advance Comprehensive Plan policies related to historic preservation and housing affordability by providing one-time assistance to one multifamily property in need of assistance to make required exterior or structural repairs that comply with historic requirements applicable to the property, while supporting low-income residents of the property and helping to avoid additional condominium or cooperative fees.

- Represents the ownership of a multifamily property in condominium or cooperative ownership located in Washington, DC.
- The property is listed in the DC Inventory of Historic Sites, either as a historic landmark or contributing building within a historic district. Work on buildings that do not contribute to the character of a historic district is not eligible.
- At least 25 percent of the unit owners in the multifamily property qualify for a grant under OP’s Targeted Homeowner Grant Program established pursuant to the Historic Landmark and Historic District Protection Act of 1978, as amended (D.C. Official Code Sec. 6-1110.02).
