Housing for a Diverse and Sustainable Community

The Alliance for Housing Solutions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to increase the supply of affordable housing* in Arlington County and Northern Virginia through public education, facilitation, and action.

AHS was created in 2003 by civic leaders motivated by the belief that Arlington was rapidly becoming a community in which only affluent families could afford to live. Since then, housing costs in our area have continued to escalate for both renters and owners, and the stock of housing affordable to low- and middle-income households have continued to decline. Our work is more important than ever.
