News: Program - LIHTC (Tax Credits)
NIFA is working on a National Affordable Housing Equality Initiative to raise awareness of problems with LIHTC incomes
Nebraska Investment Finance Authority (NIFA) is spearheading the National Affordable Housing Equality Initiative (NAHE) to raise awareness about the problems caused by outdated restrictions in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program. Specifically, the initiative seeks to re-calibrate the LIHTC national household income limits.
The following is a state‐by‐state graphical comparison of the 60% AMI limits in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program – per HUD 2012 limits.
The 2, 3 and 4 person LIHTC limits are compared to the current federal minimum wage, calculated for a two‐person household with both persons working 40 hours per week at $7.25 per hour = $30,160.
