KOVA IN BRIEF

Finnish Affordable Housing Companies’ Federation – KOVA is a national umbrella association for non-profit rental and right of occupancy housing companies and foundations in Finland.

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

KOVA has 100 members that own, maintain and build affordable and state subsidized rental and right of occupancy houses all over Finland. As members we have municipally owned housing companies and foundations, and other non-profit 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 about 285 000 rental and right of occupancy apartments – about 75 percentage of all state subsidized rental dwellings which have state limitations in Finland and more than 80 percentage of right of occupancy apartments.
