The National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) has partnered with ApartmentSmart.com to launch NAHMA Maps, a Web-based mapping tool.
The mapping application provides affordable rental housing summary data by congressional district, allowing advocates to quickly demonstrate the impact of affordable housing in a district. The data includes a summary of every major federal housing program, the number of properties funded by that program and the total number of units funded by these programs. In addition, the map shows the location of all of these properties and what federal programs were used to fund them.
The application aims to help the affordable housing industry demonstrate the scope and impact of federally subsidized housing both within the selected geographic area and nationwide, said officials. The program will provide a list of properties linked to additional community information including location, contact information, management company, number of units, types of federal subsidies, income limits and rents, amenities, and pictures.
