Company Growth

Based in Rancho Cucamonga, California, National CORE is one of the nation’s largest, and fastest-growing, nonprofit developers of affordable housing, managing more than 9,500 affordable, senior, and market rate apartment homes in California, Florida, and Texas. With dozens of new developments currently in our pipeline and ambitions to double our housing portfolio over the next five years, you can be a part of our success story as we continue to provide much-needed affordable housing. As we have grown over the past thirty years, National CORE has remained committed to maintaining our small, family business feel, where all employees are respected, valued, and heard.

Some of National CORE’s notable recent milestones include:

  • Earning an A+ credit rating from Standard and Poor’s (S&P), one of the nation’s foremost providers of credit ratings. As only the second affordable housing developer in the nation to receive such a rating, National CORE now can take advantage of new, non-traditional financing pathways for developments, continuing to grow our impact.
  • In 2021, for the third consecutive year, National CORE was named a LEED Power Builder by the US Green Building Council. This places National CORE in an elite group of 12 companies that are considered the most-sustainable housing developers in the nation. National CORE was the only nonprofit affordable housing developer to be named a Power Builder.
