New implementing regulations: Pursuant to this section, the “Relocation Regulation Payment Increase Amendment Act of 1978” (D.C. Law 2-122, Oct. 13, 1978, 25 DCR 1547) was enacted.

Change in Government

This section originated at a time when local government powers were delegated to a Board of Commissioners of the District of Columbia (see Acts Relating to the Establishment of the District of Columbia and its Various Forms of Governmental Organization in Volume 1). Section 402(131) of Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1967 (see Reorganization Plans in Volume 1) transferred all of the functions of the Board of Commissioners under this section to the District of Columbia Council, subject to the right of the Commissioner as provided in § 406 of the Plan. The District of Columbia Self-Government and Governmental Reorganization Act, 87 Stat. 818, § 711 ( D.C. Code, § 1-207.11), abolished the District of Columbia Council and the Office of Commissioner of the District of Columbia. These branches of government were replaced by the Council of the District of Columbia and the Office of Mayor of the District of Columbia, respectively. Accordingly, and also pursuant to § 714(a) of such Act ( D.C. Code, § 1-207.14(a)), appropriate changes in terminology were made in this section.


Part B. Persons Displaced by District Programs, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or Condominium Conversion.

§ 6–333.01. Relocation payments and assistance for persons displaced by District programs or by Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority; relocation services for persons displaced by condominium or cooperative conversion, or by rehabilitation, demolition, or discontinuance from housing use.

(a) Whenever real property is acquired by the government of the District of Columbia or the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority for a program or project which is not subject to §§ 210 and 211 of this title, and such acquisition will result in the displacement of any person on or after January 2, 1971, the Mayor of the District of Columbia or the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, as the case may be, shall make all relocation payments and provide all assistance required of a federal agency by this act. Whenever real property is acquired for such a program or project on or after January 2, 1971, such Mayor or Authority, as the case may be, shall make all payments and meet all requirements prescribed for a federal agency by title III of this act.

(b)(1) If a housing accommodation within the geographic boundaries of the District of Columbia is converted into a condominium or cooperative, substantially rehabilitated or demolished, or discontinued from housing use, the Mayor shall provide relocation services in the manner required by subsection (a) of this section to low-income tenants who move from the accommodation. Services include, at a minimum, ascertaining the relocation needs for each household, providing current information on the availability of comparable housing of suitable size, supplying information concerning federal and District housing programs, and providing counseling to displaced persons in order to minimize hardships in adjusting to relocation.

(2) For purposes of this section, the term:

(A) “Comparable housing” means rental or homeownership units with equivalent benefits and services included in the monthly payments.

(B) “Suitable size” means for a 1-person family, an efficiency unit; for a 2-person family, a 1-bedroom unit; for a family of 3 or 4 persons, a 2-bedroom unit; for a family of 5 or 6 persons, a 3-bedroom unit; and for a family of 7 or more persons, a 4-bedroom unit. In addition, the meaning of the term “suitable size” is increased as necessary to allow children and unmarried adults of the opposite sex to have separate sleeping rooms. In determining the meaning of the term “suitable size,” 1 person living in a 1-bedroom unit is eligible for relocation in a 1-bedroom comparable unit.
