Community Properties of Ohio

Community Properties of Ohio (CPO) Management Services is the property management company for the Community Properties Initiative in Franklin County. In 2003, the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH), an independent, nonprofit Section 42 equity provider, began a $100 million low-income housing preservation project to rehabilitate 1,300 Section 8 affordable housing, scattered-site units in seven urban neighborhoods, focused primarily around The Ohio State University and near east side areas. In addition, CPO manages several properties in other locations throughout Ohio.

Having successfully completed the rehabilitation of the portfolio, CPO continues to pursue the vision of becoming a model of transformational affordable housing. Key elements of the CPO mission include: (1) provide quality affordable housing; (2) link residents with resources that stabilize their housing; and (3) assist residents to move beyond poverty where possible. CPO is proactively addressing neighborhood safety through the Eliminate the Elements and Safe Neighborhood Initiatives. Through supportive services, CPO helps residents succeed in stabilizing housing and moving forward in their lives.Community Properties of Ohio
