Housing Body Finance

At Initiative Ireland, we are proud to support AHBs (Approved Housing Bodies) in the development of housing schemes nationwide. As an impact finance firm, we share the commitment of these organisations to address the urgent unmet need for social and affordable housing across Ireland. 

In addition to financing private developers, we can also support Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) seeking to directly develop housing schemes, with finance from our Impact Investor Community

Through our new Credit Union Initiative, we are working to increase the scale of such funding available to Tier 3 AHBs and to offer more flexible, longer-term alternative funding solutions. As the loan originator and servicer for the Social Impact Housing Credit Fund I, we can provide fleixble funding solutions to Approved Housing Bodies. 

If you represent an Approved Housing Body and would like further information about our offering, please contact us to arrange a meeting with our AHB Finance Team.
