Office of Housing

The Office of Housing coordinates and administers housing-related programs and services and makes recommendations to the City Manager and City Council on housing policy and affordable housing investments. We work closely with city and nonprofit partners, including the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority, to implement the Housing Master Plan's Housing for All policy and goal of creating new affordability in 2,000 units by 2025.
