Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations

The Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations (NIFHA) is the ‘umbrella’ organisation representing, supporting and promoting the activities of the registered and many of the non-registered Housing Associations in Northern Ireland.

Registered housing associations are in part funded by government with the rest coming from private finance arranged separately by the association.  The non-registered associations have more freedom to act but much less access to public money.

Furthermore, Co-ownership Housing, enables low-income applicants to partly buy and partly rent suitable homes, with the right to become full owners later.  Since its inception it has help over 19,000 households purchase their home.
