Local Rent Supplement Program
Locally-funded voucher program that mirrors the federally funded voucher program with key differences
designed to address the unique dynamic of affordable housing needs in the District of Columbia.
 Tenant-based
 Assistance is provided directly to eligible families by way of a voucher
 Families may only use the voucher in the District of Columbia
 Project-based
 Project-based assistance may be provided to existing, substantially rehabilitated or new
construction units that meet Housing Quality Standards
 Project-based units may include supportive services, but are not required to do so.
 Sponsor-based
 Assistance is attached to the Housing Provider for units that the provider owns, operates
or leases.
 LRSP funds may ONLY be used to directly pay for housing and may not be used for
supportive services or administrative costs.
 Housing Providers may shift the LRSP subsidy from unit to unit only if the units meet all
DCHA requirements.
 To be eligible for LRSP funding, a Sponsor-based Housing Provider must provide or
otherwise facilitate supportive services for families living in LRSP units.
