The HELP Walter Reed Veterans Apartments is being nominated for the Best Large Affordable Housing Project Award by HAND members Wiencek+Associates Architects+Planners, Jaydot LLC, the National Equity Fund, and TD Bank.
The HELP Walter Reed Veterans Apartments (“HELP Walter Reed”) provides affordable permanent supportive housing (PSH) to 77 formerly homeless military veterans on what was once the Walter Reed Army Medical Center campus in Northwest Washington, D.C. The HELP Walter Reed project was developed and is owned by HELP Development Corporation, a non-profit organization. The project was completed and began occupancy in December 2019. The HELP Walter Reed project is 100% affordable, with 75 units of permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless veterans at 30% AMI, and two units at 50% AMI. The referrals for the 75 PSH units come through the District’s Coordinated Assessment and Housing Placement (CAHP) system.
