We specialize in leveraging capital, lowering development costs, and building award-winning apartments. APAH’s staff finds creative solutions in an urbanized setting allowing us to create more homes and serve more people.

A nonprofit and seasoned developer, APAH brings integrity and compassion to our growing portfolio. And by collaborating with faith communities, clubs or community organizations, and public-private partnerships, we can unlock new sites and build density.

Because we work closely with partners to access diverse and highly efficient financing models for our projects, we are leaders in hybrid financing. In fact, we were the first developer in Virginia to propose hybrid financing – combining the 9% and 4% LIHTC programs to maximize equity – to Virginia Housing Development Authority. Our real estate team has a wealth of expertise in complex projects, not only in Low-Income Tax Credits, but also multifamily project management, and asset management.

APAH is based in Arlington, VA and serves the DC Metro region with current or upcoming properties in Loudoun and Arlington County, VA and Montgomery County, MD. We have active pipeline development projects in Fairfax, and Arlington Counties in Virginia.  We are looking to grow our development pipeline across the DC Metro region.

Let’s talk business!



APAH is known for bringing innovation, dedication, and integrity to projects that win awards.



The more than 1,800 units of APAH improve the lives of our low-income neighbors and strengthen our communities.
