Housing Tax Credit

Overview

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. In the administration of its Housing Tax Credit (HTC) programs, TDHCA determines eligibility and awards points based on actions taken by a municipality on behalf of a proposed development within the city’s limits or extraterritorial jurisdiction. Developers seeking 4% and 9% HTCs from TDHCA will use the 2020 HTC Policy to apply for necessary Resolutions from the City of San Antonio.
