Meeting Alaska’s Need for Affordable Rentals

Meeting Alaska’s Need for Affordable Rentals

Renting in Alaska is no longer about picking up the newspaper and circling apartments with the features you want in your price range. The availability of quality, affordable housing has not kept pace with Alaska’s population growth, and that means that finding a rental can be a real challenge.

At AHFC, our goal is to ensure all Alaskans have access to quality, affordable rentals.

Diverse Support for a Diverse Population

Because Alaskans' housing needs differ, we approach our goal in a variety of ways. We work with partners to fund housing developments like Loussac Place, Alaska's first mixed-income community. We provide housing vouchers to help make rentals more affordable. We also build and manage housing for Alaska's seniors, families, and individuals or families who need rentals with accessible features.

Investing in Your Success

Along with meeting the fundamental need for housing, we focus on giving Alaskans opportunities. We offer a Family Self-Sufficiency program for eligible families which combines housing assistance with supports to help families advance their economic goals.

Financial Literacy
