DC Housing Authority Board of Commissioners Approves Application for Lincoln Heights Demolition

The Lincoln Heights property includes 440 units of public housing, targeted for demolition as part of the New Communities Initiative. The property is owned and managed by the DC Housing Authority. To demolish public housing properties, the DC Housing Authority must have approval from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). At its December 2013 Board of Commissioners meeting, the DC Housing Authority approved a resolution to submit the demolition application for Lincoln Heights to HUD. The application will be submitted by the DC Housing Authority in the first quarter of 2014.
