Iowa's Largest Non-Profit Housing & Development Group
We're celebrating 20 years of housing progress for Iowa communities
Community Housing Initiatives is one of Iowa’s largest nonprofit providers of affordable housing. Founded in Graettinger in 1994, we now serve 31 communities with 1,400 apartment homes.
Working closely with communities and our valued partners, we have overseen about $200 million in housing development statewide, with an additional $16 million on the way.
We serve communities with populations as small as 800 to as large as 208,000. As proud members of the NeighborWorks America network, we are committed to cultivating strong, vibrant neighborhoods and communities throughout the state.
We strive for innovative solutions and forge new partnerships because we know quality housing choices support strong local economies and serve people who might otherwise lack a safe, decent, and affordable place to live.
