Rainbow Housing Assistance Corporation (Rainbow) provides service-enriched housing programs to residents of rental housing communities throughout the country. We work with owners and investors to design and implement programs and services that meet regulatory requirements and promote service-enriched housing for low-income and market rate communities. Tailored programming stabilizes resident populations, reduces key expense line items, and more importantly, improves the bottom line performance of operations.

When residents’ economic or family emergencies are addressed in a timely manner, they are less likely to fall behind on rent, vacate their apartment, be evicted, or create other problems for managers and owners.

Along with service-enriched housing program delivery, Rainbow is well-versed in Section 42 compliance requirements, and maintains good relationships with state housing agencies. Rainbow has a broad array of experience serving communities that are a blend of Section 8, affordable, and LIHTC properties. This unique approach to partnerships ensures compliance with all local and federal regulatory bodies, and may help secure tax exemptions, where available.

Skilled in changing the culture of a property when required, Rainbow acknowledges investor risk and provides significant oversight ensuring financially beneficial partnerships.
