Community Economics was established in 1976 to provide technical expertise in the emerging field of nonprofit affordable housing development and community based economic development.
As federal housing resources have decreased, the nonprofit sector has become a major producer of affordable rental housing. Through direct technical assistance to nonprofit developers, and through involvement with local, state, and national housing policy issues, CEI has been at the forefront of the affordable housing movement, developing creative solutions and resources to meet the housing needs of low income households.
Our primary clients are nonprofit housing development organizations and social service agencies providing housing for their special needs clients. CEI has also worked with tenant organizations and groups forming limited equity cooperatives. Public agencies frequently hire CEI to assist them in evaluating housing proposals from private developers or in devising housing priorities and programs.
