Propose Affordable Housing Project

Thank you for visiting the PHDC website. Please note that PHDC offices are closed as part of Philadelphia’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. While PHDC offices are closed we will not accept new Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to purchase publicly owned land. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we respond to the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.


The City of Philadelphia needs housing for residents at all income levels. One challenge facing the developers of affordable or workforce housing is the cost of the land. To help reduce development costs, PHDC offers publicly-owned land at reduced or nominal prices to support the development of lower-cost housing.

To explore whether we have properties that could help you develop your affordable project, first review the available properties on our interactive map.
