Our history of creating affordable housing opportunities has included both the development of new housing and the preservation of existing affordable housing to help meet the needs of our community. In support of affordable rental housing, we have participated in the development or rehabilitation of the more than 600 apartment homes in our portfolio of eleven communities. In support of affordable home ownership, we have built more than 64 single family homes, in neighborhoods such as Starr Hill, Hinton Avenue, 10th and Page, and Fifeville. We have been certified as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) since 1997.

We do not currently have any rural development projects.
