We recommend that everyone seeking affordable housing, regardless of their HIV status, take the following steps to locate housing:
- Contact the DC Housing Authority at (202) 535-1706. Make sure to apply for both a housing voucher and public housing. These are separate applications and waiting lists.
- Contact Housing Counseling Services at (202) 667-7006 and request assistance in finding affordable housing. Note: if someone does have HIV/AIDS and is referred to special programs, call back and ask for assistance through general affordable housing programs.
- Use the District’s online housing locator service at DCHousingSearch.org, which also operates a toll-free, bilingual call center (1-877-428-8844) Monday – Friday from 9 am to 8 pm EST. This assistance is also free of charge.
