The UDC-DCSL Community Development Clinic, working with the Neighborhood Legal Services Program (NLSP), Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and the Center for Community Change, helped the tenants of Highland Dwellings reach a settlement with the DC Housing Authority (DCHA). The Community Development Clinic provided tenant support throughout the process.

As a result of the settlement, DHCA has agreed to halt relocating residents of Highland Dwellings until all renovation funding is secured, relocated families will have a right of first return to the renovated property and current tenants will retain their rights as public housing residents for at least the next 40 years. This outcome preserves affordable housing for low-income residents in the District of Columbia.
