Office of Affordable Housing Preservation

The Office of Affordable Housing Preservation (OAHP) is responsible for the preservation and recapitalization of federally assisted affordable housing.  OAHP oversees and processes financial transactions to ensure the long-term physical and financial viability of affordable rental housing.  In conducting the business of preservation of affordable housing, OAHP is responsible for ensuring compliance with relevant laws and statutes.  The following programs are being implemented by OAHP:

Mark-to-Market (M2M): This program preserves affordability and availability of low income rental multifamily properties with federally insured program. The purpose of M2M is to reduce rents to market levels by restructuring existing debt to levels supportable by these rents.  The Green Initiative is also available through this program  to assist owners in rehabilitating their properties in the most sustainable way feasible.  For more information visit the Mark-to-Market Legislation and Mark-to-Market Resources sections of the Preserving Multifamily Properties web page. 

Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) This program allows proven financing tools to be applied to at-risk public and assisted housing. RAD is a central part of the Department's rental housing preservation strategy, which works to preserve the nation's stock of deeply affordable rental housing, promote efficiency within and among HUD programs, and build strong, stable communities.  For more information visit the RAD web page.

Section 236 Preservation:   This program serves as a centralized processing model for the majority of Section 236 preservation activity through the Office of Affordable Housing Preservation (OAHP).  Section 236 property owners and purchasers will no longer submit applications to the Multifamily Hub or Program CenterThis modification of HUD’s current Section 236 transaction procedures is designed to streamline how Section 236 prepayment applications and related requests are processed, and to assign dedicated staff to oversee the complex work involved in these transactions.  For more information visit the 236 Preservation web page.

Senior Preservation Rental Assistance Contracts (SPRAC)The Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Act of 2010, signed into law in January 2011, authorizes HUD to provide SPRACs with 20-year terms to prevent displacement of elderly residents of certain projects assisted under HUD’s Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program in the case of refinancing or recapitalization and to further preserve and maintain affordability of Section 202 Direct Loan projects.  The purpose of SPRACs is to prevent displacement of income-eligible elderly residents of Section 202 Direct Loan properties with original interest rates of 6% or less in the case of refinancing or recapitalization.  SPRAC is an important preservation tool for affordable multifamily properties.  For more information visit the SPRAC web page.
