Affordable Housing

Navigating the Highly Regulated Affordable Housing Industry

Affordable housing communities that receive funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the IRS through section 42 Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) face tremendous obstacles when developing and maintaining properties. It’s an understatement to say that complying with the many regulations that apply to the affordable housing industry is complex. A misstep can be detrimental with repercussions that include loss of government funding and/or low-income housing tax credits and the inability to participate in future programs.
