Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

The Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) is designed to provide for-profit and nonprofit developers with an incentive to create and maintain affordable housing. This is the country’s most extensive affordable housing program. Developments that may qualify for credits include new construction, acquisition with rehabilitation, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse. Owners of and investors in qualifying developments can use the credit as a dollar-for-dollar reduction of federal income tax liability. Allocations of credits are used to leverage public, private and other funds in order to keep rents to tenants affordable.
