The NOAH Impact Fund, through the staff at GMHF, provides planning and technical assistance to housing organizations, local governments, housing developers and owner-operators throughout Minnesota to address housing needs in a variety of diverse locations and contexts.
GMHF helps developers and communities be more effective and better meet local and regional affordable housing and community development needs, putting public resources for affordable housing to the best use.
We seek to meet the unique needs of both high-performing, experienced organizations as well as communities with limited housing expertise who need help with early planning, market studies, and project development.
GMHF’s partners consistently report that planning and technical assistance fills a critical need that advances their development plans and builds community support. GMHF provides planning and technical assistance on a variety of topics.
An investor seeking a social as well as economic return on your investment?
Investing in multifamily rental housing ensures long-term affordability and reduces the displacement of low-income residents.
An owner-operator interested in acquiring and maintaining affordable rental properties in the Twin Cities metro?
The NOAH Impact Fund can connect owner-operators with the capital necessary to acquire and finance the rehabilitation of multifamily rental properties while preserving their affordability.
Scoping out a new affordable housing development and trying to structure the many layers of financing?
We can explain the full range of financing available and help determine which types of debt and equity make the most sense for you.
