9% Housing Credit

The Commission's 9% Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) allocates federal income tax credit to developers to encourage the construction and rehabilitation of affordable multifamily housing. Housing credit in the 9% Program is allocated through an annual competitive process in which projects are evaluated and scored according to the Commission’s established criteria.
