Welcome to the website for Housing Partners, Inc. in Watertown, MA. We are a full-service national affordable housing consulting firm serving government agencies, for-profit and non-profit housing developers and asset managers, universities, nonprofit service agencies and community groups, as well as housing authorities and housing finance agencies throughout the United States. We can help with the complex issues that such organizations face in developing/managing housing and in creating and administering programs of housing assistance.

Housing Partners, Inc. provides advice, guidance and a wide range of services. We provide assistance in strategic planning, development and redevelopment feasibility, new program development, and organizational development. We can help with public housing, assisted multifamily housing, assisted living, affordable homeownership, and community revitalization efforts, as well as with issues of organizational management and employer-assisted housing.  We were also among the authors of the 40R Smart Growth Zoning and Housing Production statute in Massachusetts, the Workforce Housing Trust Fund, and are very experienced in using Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and New Markets Tax Credits.

Started in 1995 by the top leaders of the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency, who were also former leaders of the HUD Area Office in Boston, we bring over 100 years of experience in this field, and a particular sensitivity to the pressures facing public sector officials, both in their own operations and in the way that they respond to private partners in housing programs.

Housing Partners, Inc. is owned by 50% each by Marvin Siflinger and Eleanor White, both with national reputations for innovation and creativity in programs of housing development, asset management, organizational excellence, and community revitalization. They, along with professional colleagues and contract consultants, can bring a comprehensive approach to the needs of housing providers.

HPI combines unique experience in the public sector with a keen understanding of the priorities and needs of both public and private sector clients.
