Member Update

March 28, 2023

One of the many benefits of national CARH membership is the opportunity for companies to participate in CARH’s Preferred Buyers program. We have been able to combine the size and strength of our membership to negotiate national supplier agreements at preferred pricing with large national vendors:  HD Supply, ONLINE Rental Exchange, Sherwin-Williams, Staples, and USI Insurance Services. These Preferred Buyer companies provide CARH members and member properties with unprecedented services and savings!

In addition, every purchase you make through a linked account to national CARH, supports CARH’s mission to our members and residents in the affordable rural housing industry.

We encourage all of our members to look toward Staples for all of your office needs. However, Staples offers so much more than office supplies, including products, solutions and savings in the following categories:

  • Janitorial/Sanitation and Cleaning Supplies – Facility Site Assessments to improve efficiency and reduce labor costs
  • Breakroom
  • Mailroom Essentials
  • Furniture
  • Technology
  • Print Marketing, Design & Quick Print
  • Promotional Products
  • And yes, of course, Office Supplies, Paper, and Toner!

Check out the program details on the CARH Members Only Program page to learn more about the CARH Staples program and where you have access to:

  • Buying Power– Leverages the spend of all CARH members
