Affordable Housing


The Phyllis Wheatley Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) redevelopment project ensures the long-term preservation of 84 units of affordable housing in a gentrifying neighborhood of Washington, D.C. PACE financed solar and energy efficiency upgrades take the renovated facility beyond basic building code, reducing operating costs for the facility by nearly $6,000 per year. This project marks the first use of PACE financing for a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) assisted mixed-finance public housing property.
