Housing

We help affordable housing developers, state and local governments, and social service agencies bring high-quality housing to low-income and special needs individuals. Through our capital solutions and real estate services, you can:

  • Finance the acquisition, construction, or rehabilitation of multi-family or single-family developments, including predevelopment and permanent financing
  • Get initial project planning support, including bringing partners together, studying market demand, identifying sites, and packaging funding sources
  • Source ready-to-build projects assembled by our development team; and
  • Rely on our development team to plan, finance, and build your project for you.

In suburban Chicago, for example, we coordinate the West Cook County Housing Collaborative, a joint effort by five municipalities to develop quality, long-term affordable housing near public transit.

We also work with state and local governments to address the need for affordable, integrated housing for individuals with disabilities. Through our Home First initiative, we acquire, develop, own, and manage homes that remain permanently affordable to very low-income people with disabilities, with a focus on expanding the availability of accessible housing.
