Fund Overview

Alliant Strategic Investments (“ASI”) and CommonGood Capital have created the ASI Multi-Family Impact Fund (“MFIF”) which will source, acquire, enhance, operate and asset manage a portfolio of multi-family properties. These properties will consist of both Affordable and Workforce housing assets located in census tracts with a minority population of at least 50%. Affordable and Workforce housing renters can be generally thought of as “Renters by Necessity” because the cost burden to buy a house is prohibitive. MFIF favors investments in these properties because of the deep renter demand for the product, the absence of adequate supply in the foreseeable future, the social impact, and the barriers to entry. We believe there are significant opportunities to refresh and enhance the current supply of Affordable and Workforce housing to provide clean, safe and affordable homes for residents, while also generating potentially competitive returns for investors.

Affordable and Workforce Housing Shortage

 The shortage of rental housing in the U.S. for the lowest income renters exceeds 7 million units. [8] Fewer than four Affordable units are available for every ten eligible low-income renters. [8] The supply of Affordable and Workforce units is shrinking, as new construction has not kept pace with demand. Current production of Affordable housing units will replace only a portion, about half, of what is at risk of loss. [9]

Strong Fundamentals

Multifamily has generally outperformed other real estate sectors during challenging times [10] due to largely inelastic demand and rent growth consistently exceeding the rate of inflation. [11] Cash flows from affordable housing are also partly insulated from the economy due to government assisted rents for some tenants, and historically short term leases allow for more frequent rental adjustments to keep up with inflation.

Impact of Housing

Housing has always played an essential role in shaping numerous outcomes for each member of a household. It is a well-researched and proven concept that the location and quality of one’s home may impact current and future generation’s employment, education, social interactions, life span, mental and physical health, and economic growth. [12]
