Impact Performance


Impact thesis

The need for affordable housing is growing dramatically in the United States. Out of 43 million households that rent, an unprecedented 21.3 million renter households – one in roughly half of all renters in the U.S. - spend more than half of their monthly income on rent. With that rental cost burden, there is very little left for the other necessities of life, such as food, healthcare, education and transportation to employment. At last measure, there were 11.2 very low income families competing for 7.3 million units considered affordable to them, a housing supply gap of 3.9 million units. Rising rents and stagnant wages have made most rental housing unaffordable to low income families.
Starting at year-end 2013, more than one million subsidized apartment units have been reaching the end of their affordable use restrictions. Without preserving these properties as affordable, they can be sold to market rate developers who can rehabilitate them and substantially increase rents, rents usually unaffordable to existing tenants. The confluence of: 1) minimal new construction relative to demand, 2) older affordable properties deteriorating out of existence and 3) properties with expiring use restrictions being sold to market rate developers combine to exacerbate an already critical situation.
The investors in this Fund will earn an economic return, help to alleviate the critical shortage of affordable multifamily housing and make a real social impact.
