Civic’s success is due in great part to the strong relationships we build with our public and private partners. We prioritize these relationships, especially when entering a new market, to help us identify unique real estate opportunities and provide key market insights that drive long-term value for our investors. We then work with all involved to creatively structure and execute the transaction.

To achieve our goal of building better for all, we create housing that is not only affordable, but also desirable and sustainable, across a broad range of incomes. We focus on building new units with creative financing sources, including soft funding from municipalities, tax credits, bond financing, and more. It results in housing that is deeply affordable and designed to support our most vulnerable communities—with units as low as 30% AMI.
