The National Council of State Housing Agencies website has mutiple resources for housing authorities.

NCSHA provided a Housing Credit FAQ sheet (last updated January 2018) that provides a LIHTC program summary. This may be useful to provide as a resource to board members, new staff members and/or legislative representatives.

The FAQ sheet covers the following:

  • Introduction to the housing credit and whom it serves
  • Why the housing credit is necessary and the resulting number of affordable apartments
  • Costs associated with the housing credit and program administration/oversight
  • The economic impact, funding leveraged and other program benefits
  • Private sector investment incentivized by the housing credit
  • Performance of housing credit financed properties
  • Tax reform impact on the housing credit
