NALHFA Member Spotlight: The Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program

Posted By Administration, Friday, May 5, 2017
The Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program has been one of the most successful tools for boosting private investment in the development and preservation of affordable housing in the United States. The LIHTC program was created by the Tax Reform Act of 1986, and since then has given LIHTC state and local allocating agencies the equivalent of approximately $8 billion in annual budget authority to issue tax credits for the acquisition, rehabilitation, and new construction of rental housing targeted to lower-income households. With these funds, approximately 6.5 million low-income households have lived in affordable housing apartments financed by LIHTC from 1986 to 2013. 

The LIHTC program is a critical tool in combating the country's affordable housing crisis and has helped millions of families across the nation. Numerous NALHFA members have used LIHTC to help fund innovative, state-of-the-art affordable housing projects in their communities. As part of our Member Spotlight series, this month NALHFA will be showcasing several successful member projects that utilized this essential funding source. Read the full story here.
