515 Transfer Technical Assistance

Enterprise has a long history of providing technical assistance (TA) to nonprofit organizations, public housing authorities, and tribal nonprofits in rural communities. Since 2017, Enterprise has provided focused TA on the transfer in ownership of USDA 515 properties to preserve the long-term affordability of the property. Our Rural Communities team provides services to affordable housing developers and owners interested in taking ownership and preserving rural multifamily properties with Section 515 USDA loans and Section 521 rental assistance.

We have also developed the Rural Rental Housing Preservation Academy, a series of trainings and conversations that give an overview of the pending preservation risks facing rural communities and reviews of the Section 515 transfer and preservation process, providing specific guidance for the identification of 515 properties and the Section 515 transfer process.​
