OCCH is a nonprofit financial intermediary based in Columbus, Ohio that works with private and public developers to create affordable housing opportunities using the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program. Since 1989, OCCH has invested more than $5 billion in the construction, rehabilitation, and preservation of affordable housing; creating economic opportunities, stable communities, and empowering those most in need.
Our mission is to advance the preservation, production, and management of affordable housing through collaborative partnership and innovative thought leadership.
We envision a world where stable, affordable housing is available to all, and the residents and communities we serve feel supported and empowered to grow and thrive.
Driven to serve our communities and residents and help our partners be successful, OCCH created three affiliates to address critical needs.
Ohio Capital Impact Corporation
Community Properties of Ohio
Ohio Capital Finance Corporation
OCCH formed the Ohio Capital Impact Corporation (OCIC) in 2012 as the non-profit, philanthropic arm of Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing. OCIC provides funding to support organizations and strategies that enable residents of affordable housing developments to expand opportunities and improve their life outcomes.
Since the fund’s inception, OCIC has raised nearly $25 million, funded through OCCH’s retained earnings and with support from Huntington Bank, Key Bank, Fifth Third Bank and JP Morgan Chase. OCIC has awarded grants to partners for activities and programs that seek to assist residents in removing barriers, enhance educational and economic opportunities, and empower residents working creatively to enhance and revitalize their communities.
Formed in 2003, Community Properties of Ohio (CPO) is the property management affiliate of Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing and manages a variety of affordable housing communities. CPO Management goes beyond traditional property management in providing innovative resident programs to promote long-term goals and self-sufficiency. Our mission is to provide quality affordable housing, link residents with resources that stabilize their housing, and assist residents to move beyond poverty where possible.
CPO Impact, our supportive services affiliate, helps fund resident-focused initiatives that address five core objectives: stable housing, safe neighborhoods, resident growth (including moving beyond poverty where possible), successful children and community learning.
The Ohio Capital Finance Corporation (OCFC) was formed in 2002 as the nonprofit lending affiliate of Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing. OCFC is a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and member of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati and Opportunity Finance Network.
OCFC provides flexible financing products and utilizes partnerships for the expansion and preservation of affordable housing. With total assets under management of over $114 million, OCFC has closed 718 loans, financed more than 29,105 units, and generated over $668 million to assist in the production, rehabilitation and preservation of affordable housing and community development.
