The Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program has been a key component in the creation of affordable housing; in the 30 years since the program’s inception it has led to the development and financing of more than 2 million affordable apartment units.
LIHTC data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and demographic and housing data the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey (ACS) were used by the NAHB Economics and Housing Policy group to create a series of maps, which show the concentration of LIHTC units by census tract and categorizes each census tract by income: very low-income, low-income, moderate-income, or high-income.
These maps provide users with the opportunity to better understand the distribution of LIHTC housing in 21 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) across the country with new MSAs being added frequently!
