Pacific Northwest Rural Rental Preservation Academy

At Enterprise, we believe that opportunity begins when people have a safe, healthy and affordable place to call home. As part of that work, our Rural and Native American Program team has developed regional rural housing preservation academies. These are a series of no-cost training and peer-learning sessions designed to help rural housing providers and nonprofits acquire and preserve USDA Rural Development, HUD 811 and 202, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and other subsidized and affordable housing.
