Affordable housing is part of Habitat’s foundation. Our Chairman, Daniel Levin, founded The Habitat Company in 1971 to fulfill his vision for South Commons, an ambitious 28-acre urban renewal project on Chicago’s South Side. We’ve experienced incredible growth since then, and we’re not done yet – the future of Habitat Affordable development has never looked brighter.
We’ve developed properties financed through a broad range of conventional and public funding programs, including tax-exempt bonds, low-income housing tax credits, HOME, CDBG and project-based section 8. Our proven track record and ability to successfully navigate complex financing structures make us uniquely qualified to lead affordable housing development projects.
