Transfer & Rehabilitation of Four DC Government-Owned Houses to The L'Enfant Trust

Alongside residents of our Historic Anacostia community, HAPS actively campaigned for the transfer of four abandoned, blighted, historic homes from the DC Government to The L'Enfant Trust.

The blighted homes were owned by DC Housing and Community Development and abandoned for years, posing dangers to our Anacostia neighbors. The L'Enfant Trust hoped to do the rehabilitation of the homes at zero cost to the DC taxpayer, and sell them to members of the workforce.

With support from DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson, Councilmember Anita Bonds, our Historic Anacostia community, and residents across DC, the legislation pushed through!

The homes now belong to the Trust, who will rehabilitate the structures and sell as workforce housing.
