State HFAs work actively to preserve affordable rental properties "at-risk" of being lost to the affordable housing inventory and offer financing to profit and not-for-profit developers to encourage the preservation of affordable housing in their states.

HFAs have made additional resources available to encourage such preservation and make sure that sellers are not financially disadvantaged by selling their property to an entity which intends to preserve it as affordable. As a 2015 Legislative Priority, NCSHA is seeking changes to existing housing programs and the creation of new ones to preserve existing affordable rental housing.
