In establishing the housing linkage objective, the District sets forth the following
(1) To encourage the construction and rehabilitation of housing throughout the District
of Columbia, particularly housing that is affordable to low- and moderate-income households;
(2) To reduce a shortage of affordable housing in the District which has been caused
in part by increased demand for this housing from employees of new commercial development
who compete with present residents for scarce, vacant affordable housing, and by high
land values which raise the cost of housing and which are partly a function of the
demand for additional commercial office space in the National Capital; and
(3) To increase the income tax base and labor force in the District by providing a
mechanism to stimulate the development and expansion of housing for employees in the
District who cannot afford to reside in the District.
