About the Developer
Homeport is a private non-profit organization established by partners including the City of Columbus, The Enterprise Foundation, Columbus REALTORS, The Columbus Foundation, and local religious and private-sector leaders. Since 1987, Homeport has invested in the Greater Columbus community by developing, building and renovating quality, affordable homes primarily financed with private investment leveraged by Federal housing tax credits. The non-profit’s portfolio includes both affordable and market-rate multifamily and single family homes for rent and lease-to-purchase.
Homeport’s work in real estate development and community development has catalyzed revitalization in neighborhoods across Franklin County. The organization has established itself as the largest locally-focused nonprofit producer of affordable housing and related services in the region, and as one of the top fifteen producers of affordable housing in the NeighborWorks® America national network.
