KOVA IN BRIEF

Association for Advocating Affordable Rental Housing – KOVA is a national umbrella association for non-profit rental housing companies and foundations in Finland.

KOVA was established in 2013 to strengthen the lobbying of non-profit rental housing companies and foundations. Our mission is to gather all the Finnish non-profit rental housing companies and foundations together. Our goal is to create permanent conditions for production of reasonable priced rental housing in Finland.

KOVA has 36 members that own, maintain and build reasonable priced and state subsidized rental houses all over Finland. As members we have municipally owned rental housing companies and foundations, and other non-profit rental housing companies and foundations as members. Some of our members offers also affordable housing for special groups such as elderly persons and handicapped persons. Our members’ ownership covers more than 182 000 rental apartments – about 45 percentage of all state subsidized rental houses in Finland.

LOBBYING

Through diverse relations to civil servants, politicians and other organizations which have housing on their agenda, KOVA has already grown to a leading lobbyist and expert in rental housing.

Already in its early state KOVA has established a position, where it is consulted directly over draft legislation affecting its members´ interests. KOVA also takes actively initiatives to change legislation.
