Low Income Housing Tax Credits


The Low Income Housing Tax Credit has been creating affordable housing since 1986.

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) was part of the 1986 tax reform to encourage the construction and rehabilitation of affordable rental housing. It was administered by the Treasury Department and allocated by state agencies under Qualified Allocation Plans, which set out the rules for which each state dictates its LIHTC program. The credit was allocated to states based on population, with a floor for low population states. The LIHTC has rules to follow on both federal and state levels.
