The Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria (AHCN) is an umbrella organization for all federal and state housing agencies, housing research institutes, mortgage establishments and private property developers.

The AHCN was inaugurated at Enugu on the 28th May, 1964 by the defunct four regional housing corporations and the Lagos Executive Development Board, (LEDB)(now LSDPC).  Today, membership of the Association has swelled to 50 member organizations including the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN), Federal Housing Authority (FHA) and Nigerian Building & Road Research Institute (NBRRI), etc.  All the 36 states Housing Agencies are members.

The affairs of the Association are conducted entirely by the Council. The Council is the governing body and the highest policy making organ of the Association. The Council is empowered to appoint such committee or co-opt persons as it may deem expedient for the smooth running of the Association. Every member organization has representatives in the Council.


About AHCN

AHCN Seminars and Workshops are targeted at capacity building in Nigeria's housing sector  

Eradicating homelessness in Africa is our noble goal


Tackling housing Problems in Africa's urban communities

The ever-increasing migration of people into the major cities in the country in pursuit of greener pastures has made the quest for securing decent accommodation in the main cities a herculean task, which only few privileged individuals can afford. Many Nigerians make do with squatting with family relations or friends, while others manage in squalor and unhygienic accommodations where the rents are within reach. There is hardly any recognized and operational Rental Housing Institution that provides well-structured and formal Rental Housing targeted at the medium to low income segment in existence throughout the country
