Rent Stabilized Housing Inflation Protection Emergency Amendment Act of 2023

Earlier this year, District tenants who live in rent-controlled units learned that the caps on annual rent increases for “Rent Control Year 2023” (5/1/2023 to 4/30/2024) would be the highest on record -- 5% for elderly and disability tenants; 8.9% for all others.    

On Tuesday June 6th, 2023, the D.C. Council approved emergency legislation that will lower those caps to 4% and 6%, respectively.  These lower caps will be in effect for two years starting on July 1, 2023, through June 30, 2025.   

These two documents below, published by the Office of the Tenant Advocate, help clarify the legislation for renters.
