The Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) offers affordable housing opportunities for Ohioans including first-time homebuyers, renters, senior citizens, and other populations with special needs who otherwise might not be able to afford quality housing.
As the leader in developing innovative, effective programs that strengthen Ohio communities and address affordable housing needs throughout the state, OHFA has revamped its Office of Multifamily Housing to include a Development Division, a Compliance Division and an Asset Management Division.
OHFA offers several affordable loan options to help Ohioans achieve the dream of homeownership. These options include 30-year, fixed rate FHA, VA, USDA-RD and conventional mortgage loans designed especially for homebuyers with low- and moderate-incomes with generous income and purchase price limits.
The Office of Research and Analytics was established in December 2009 and serves as a resource to develop evidence-based affordable housing policies through research, project development and management, data analysis, and engaging stakeholder collaborations.
OHFA's Multifamily Training team is dedicated to fostering and promoting positive relationships with all parties involved with OHFA funded multifamily housing. This office ensures the consistent management of all policies and helps provide a smooth transition through the development and compliances phases of funded projects. Services for multifamily industry partners include several courses and training offerings, on-boarding programs, relationship management and programmatic development, as well as other technical assistance.
