Housing Tax Credit


Housing Tax Credits are federal tax subsidies for the construction, rehabilitation, reconstruction, and adaptive reuse of rental properties for vulnerable populations including families, elderly residents, and other special populations. While these are federal tax subsidies, they are administered at the state level. The Federal Government determines state allocations of tax credits based partially on state population. In Texas, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) awards the state’s tax credit allotment.
