Property Owners, Managers, & Other Partners


IHDA-Assisted Multifamily Rental Housing

IHDA and its Asset Management department welcome you to this page which outlines key information and helpful resources for the management of IHDA-assisted multifamily rental housing.


The Asset Management department is responsible for ensuring effective and efficient program administration and long-term compliance for the largest portfolio of affordable multifamily rental housing in the state of Illinois. This work encompasses physical, financial, and operational compliance oversight for properties that utilize a variety of financial instruments including debt, equity, and operating subsidy. The Asset Management department works in partnership with property developers, owners, and managers as well as other funders, interagency groups, and stakeholders.


The following teams comprise the Asset Management department:

  • Executive: Establishes and implements departmental strategic direction – guiding structure, operations, preservation initiatives, and department culture – in partnership with internal and external stakeholders.

  • Strategic Solutions: Serves as an implementation driver for departmental strategic direction through consultative work in policy, processes, data, and training.

  • Portfolio Analysis: Ensures financial viability of properties through financial analysis, insurance and reserves administration, and loan servicing. Proactively identifies and responds to portfolio risks through an array of intervening measures including restructuring of ownership, management, and/or financing.

  • Program Administration: Develops and implements programming including contractual and subsidy administration. Oversees physical conditions compliance based on applicable Federal and State standards through capital improvement request handling and conduct of inspections.

  • Rental Compliance: Oversees operational compliance of properties assisted with IHDA bonds, grants, loans, or tax credits based on applicable Federal and State standards through management, occupancy, and tenant file reviews.


Ensure effective and efficient program administration and long-term compliance for the largest portfolio of affordable multifamily rental housing in Illinois.


Take a structured and strategic approach to preserve the IHDA investment in and to achieve optimal benefits for residents in partnership with property owners/agents.


Principles of communication, accountability, and consistency inform decision-making, shape culture, and drive work.
