The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program is highly competitive for affordable housing developers. To qualify, it requires submitting an application to the state where your project will operate. If accepted, you will be awarded credits by the state. However, in order to be awarded these credits, you must make certain promises about who you will rent to, as well as restrict the income limits of at least some tenants. It can be fairly complex.
Despite being difficult to navigate, the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit is vital to the success of your affordable housing project. It's crucial to find an experienced professional with a background in affordable housing to help you manage the complexity, so you can focus on your development’s success.
