(<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /?>Washington, DC) - The Office of the Tenant Advocate has moved to new location. The OTA is still located in the same building; 941 North Capitol Street, NE, but we have moved from the 9th floor to the 7th floor into suite 7400.
The relocation to the new floor was a culmination of more than a year of planning by the director of OTA Ms. Johanna Shreve and her staff.
It was not enough to just acquire a dedicated office space, but more importantly to have a new facility that allowed the agency to increase and improve the quality of service to the tenants of the District of Columbia.
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>
The new amenities of the Office of the Tenant Advocate are:
Dedicated areas for interviewing clients, which increase privacy and confidentiality
A reception and waiting area
Improved work areas for the Tenant Advocates
A conference room
A Tenant Resource Center. This area (which is still under construction and nearing completion) is a dedicated space for tenants and tenant associations. The area will have computers, copiers, a fax machine and an educational and resource library, all of which will be at the disposal of District tenants and tenant organizations.
OTA also has a new main phone number as well which is (202) 719-6560. Our office is open Monday thru Friday, 8:15 am to 4:45 pm. On Fridays we do not accept walk in interviews. If you have any questions please call our main number.
Please feel free to come by and enjoy the new offices that were constructed to serve the needs of the tenants of the District of Columbia. Welcome to the new offices of the Tenant Advocate.
