What Survivor Advocates Should Know about the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program: Pt. 2 of 4

National Alliance for Safe Housing

The National Alliance for Safe Housing (NASH) and Regional Housing Legal Services have created a webinar series for survivor advocates on what they should know about the federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. The LIHTC program is the largest federal program encouraging the creation of affordable rental housing for low-income households in the U.S., with approximately 100,000 new units developed annually and producing over 3 million total housing units, since the program’s inception. The LIHTC program is a critical source of affordable housing for tenants, including survivors. Yet, much about the LIHTC program is not commonly known among advocates working with survivors.
