Greenbelt Homes

Established to provide public housing during the New Deal, in 1952 the Federal Government decided to sell Greenbelt to the highest bidder. To avoid being bought by a private landlord, citizens in Greenbelt formed a housing cooperative and purchased the homes themselves. Greenbelt Homes today still owns the 1,600 original units, making it the DC-region's largest housing cooperative.
