  • Overview

    • Affordable housing laid the foundation of Related Companies and we continue to place a high priority on developing, acquiring and preserving housing for this sector.
    • Over 60% of our 50,000+ residential apartment homes under our management are part of one or more affordable housing programs, and an additional 20% of these homes provide workforce housing.
    • In the area of acquisitions and refinancing, we pursue properties that meet one of the following criteria:
      • Section 8 properties with project-based contracts
      • Section 236 properties in need of rehabilitation
      • Section 42 LIHTC properties with expiring low-income restrictions
      • Section 515 FmHA properties with loans that can be prepaid
      • Other assisted properties, including HODAG, HOME, federal or state-financed public housing.
    • Many of the buildings we encounter are in need of substantial upgrading and preservation in order to continue to properly fulfill the needs of their tenants.
    • Given our 45 years of experience in debt and equity financing – as well as our extensive management of government-assisted properties – we are well positioned to buy out existing owners who lack the resources and experience to recapitalize and, therefore, wish to exit the affordable housing arena
