Affordable Housing

Housing & Residential Needs

WHDC funds nonprofits to preserve, rehabilitate and create sustainable affordable income housing to help continue a successful urban environment.




The shrinking vacant land pool and disappearing City-owned housing stock, coupled with advancing influx of newcomers as immigrants and professionals, all spell an increasing squeeze on low-income housing.

In implementing its affordable housing program, WHDC aims to ensure that it makes significant permanent increments to the affordable housing stock in MCD9. WHDC is continually searching for land and partners to invest its $10 million – (currently paid installment by CU) in housing development.
