POAH logoPreservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and steward affordable rental housing to provide stability, hope and economic security to low- and moderate-income individuals and families.  POAH owns and operates close to 8,500 affordable homes at more than 70 properties in nine states and the District of Columbia.

POAH has rescued and restored some of America’s most ‘at risk’ rental housing. We are known nationally for our ability to develop innovative financing structures and to close complex deals which preserve long-term housing affordability for seniors, individuals with disabilities and families priced out of the housing market.  POAH has also successfully influenced a range of public policies to address the nation’s housing preservation challenges.
