Policy & Advocacy

The Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development plays an important and unique role in providing a forum for local nonprofits and mission-driven for-profits to discuss their policy needs. CNHED advocates forcefully on those issues on their behalf.


FY2021 Budget Asks & Recommendations

While our FY2021 Budget Engagement has been delayed and drastically modified due to COVID-19, we are excited to present CNHED‘s Budget Recommendations for the amended FY2020 budget as well as the FY2021 Budget.



In addition to the above recommendations, CNHED has also drafted a position on equity and inclusion as the District reopens from the COVID-19 Emergency. The below position outlines creative solutions to ensure that affordable housing projects and developments in the pipeline can still move forward.







Finally, although the Committee on Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization public hearing has passed, organizations and individuals can still submit testimony to the record by emailing it to housing@dccouncil.us. We’ve developed a written testimony template organizations and individuals can use to submit written testimony. The testimony template provides in-depth information and reasoning surrounding CNHED‘s budget recommendations and can be modified to fit the lens/perspective of the organization submitting it.
