Central Arkansas Housing Corporation (CAHC) is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the state of Arkansas in October 2006. CAHC was created by the Housing Authority of the City of Little Rock (LRHA) to facilitate the development, financing and construction of multi-family and single-family residential housing in the city of Little Rock and the Central Arkansas area. The operations of CAHC are primarily funded by developer fees, rental revenue from tenants and federal, state and private grant funds that are treated as exchange transactions, and through returns generated by lending of support funds received to third party operating units who also participate in project development, financing, construction and operation. CAHC also receives housing assistance subsidy payments from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These funds are in turn disbursed to various applicable properties.
