CHALLENGE

Nearly half of renters are cost-burdened and an estimated 11 million housing units are needed to address the crisis. Government subsidies can only do so much and cover so many people.

 

Teachers, first responders and nurses typically earn too much to qualify for housing subsidies and are increasingly unable to afford rents close to their jobs. While housing prices continue to grow, so do the labor, materials, and other costs of building, renovating, and preserving affordable housing.

OPPORTUNITY

Government subsidies alone aren’t solving the housing crisis faced by families and communities across the country.

 

Our work is to creatively address affordable housing needs, using all the tools at our disposal, to deliver workforce housing, mixed-income housing, and housing close to education and healthcare services.

WE INVEST IN

Deeply Affordable Housing

Combining private and philanthropic capital with existing resource pools to bring truly affordable housing to communities.

Workforce Housing
