Picture of Preservation Need

While the need is critical, thousands of homes are at risk of exiting these programs each year, whether through property depreciation, the expiration of tax credits, or insufficient funding.

By 2026, 327,565 affordable homes will have expired affordability restrictions. Others may need reinvestment to remain in safe operating condition for families. Yet with the right data, invested community partners can intervene and preserve the stock of affordable housing in their states and communities.
