Affordable and Workforce Housing

Providing high quality, affordable housing to America’s most economically vulnerable citizens

80,000+ individuals live in our 50,000 affordable-housing apartments, a portfolio that extends across 25 states and the District of Columbia. Our longstanding commitment to providing and preserving quality affordable housing to America’s most economically vulnerable citizens is best demonstrated by the fact that we have never exited an affordable housing program or converted an affordable housing site to market rate.

Working with community insiders to best serve our residents

Related has partnered with more than two dozen nonprofits to address the needs of the local community in nearly 70 different affordable housing developments, with services ranging from after-school activities to financial skills workshops to health and wellness programs.

Our efforts to weave our properties into the fabric of their communities is organically done when we team up with community insiders. One powerful example is the seven joint venture projects Related California has undertaken with churches in Black communities over the past 15 years, creating nearly 500 affordable family and senior units.
