About Housing Visions
Housing Visions purchases, develops and consults on projects, substantially rehabilitates or newly constructs homes, and performs property management functions. It specializes in Low Income Housing Tax Credits and has successfully rehabilitated a number of buildings including some eligible to be listed on the historic registry, and has received NYS Preservation awards. Housing Visions serves low- to moderate-income households including special populations such as the physically handicapped, victims of domestic violence, and homeless veterans. Over 70% of its capital funding comes from private sources. Its operating funding primarily is from fees received on the projects developed.

The work of Housing Visions increases the supply of safe, attractive, affordable housing in otherwise deteriorating neighborhoods. This work also provides an economic stimulus to these communities. The increased vitality of the neighborhood brings more businesses that are interested in having a presence there. This in turn brings opportunities for employment for the local residents and improves the financial standing of the community in a number of ways. The construction process itself creates local jobs, encourages local purchases, and the improvements inspire neighboring owners and businesses to do the same.
