The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) is the federal government’s primary vehicle for producing affordable rental housing. It provides $8 billion in annual budget authority to state and local housing agencies to help produce new and rehabilitated rental housing for low-income households. The LIHTC has generated over 3 million housing units since its inception.
As the population ages and some LIHTC properties approach the end of their 30-year affordability requirement, the program must consider ways to address the increasing need for affordable rental housing.
