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.

Welcome to the Office of Housing!

We provide a range of services to homeowners, renters, homebuyers, landlords and property managers and collaborate with development partners to preserve and create affordable and accessible housing options across the City of Alexandria. Please download our housing resource guide in English, Spanish, Amharic, or Arabic, visit our resource links, and check out what's new! For information about public housing and the Housing Choice (Section 8) Voucher Program, please contact the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority.

A portion of the City's housing activities are funded through annual grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's CDBG and HOME programs (check out our video!). The Office of Housing also works with programs funded and/or administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development and the Virginia Housing Development Authority.
