How much capital do we need to invest along the Purple Line corridor to make sure it’s an affordable and accessible place to live, especially for households earning less than $70,000, now and in the future? How can we grow nonprofit capacity alongside that investment?

Enterprise Community Partners’ Mid-Atlantic Office seeks an experienced organization with strong real-estate analysis experience, affordable housing expertise, and knowledge of the Washington, DC region to complete a capital needs and nonprofit capacity analysis for the Purple Line corridor to answer these questions.

This study aims to help decisionmakers understand the amount and types of capital to achieve the Purple Line Corridor Coalition’s no net loss goal and support transit-oriented development in ways that center existing residents. It will inform how new investment can support existing residents along the Purple Line and welcome more people to the corridor. And it will help tailor capacity-building efforts and mobilize additional operational support for nonprofits serving the corridor and the Purple Line Corridor Coalition.
