About Us

Preservation of Affordable Housing, Inc. (POAH) is, as its name implies, a non-profit organization committed to preserving “at risk” affordable rental housing around the country. Based in Boston, with branch offices in Chicago and Washington D.C., POAH is a growing entrepreneurial organization which currently owns and manages approximately 10,000 affordable rental homes for low-income families and seniors in ten states and the District of Columbia. On average, resident incomes in POAH communities are only 30% of area median incomes.


POAH’s reach is national in scope, and its pursuit of the preservation mission is empowered by a focus on the business bottom line. Its strong reputation has resulted from a demonstrated ability to craft complex financial transactions, tackle tough multi-family projects, and close deals that preserve the affordability of ‘at risk’ properties. The organization and its leaders are at the forefront of policy and legislative discussions around housing preservation, affordable housing finance and regulatory reform, including energy efficiency in the multifamily sector.
