This system allows selective access to data from HUD's Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Database. Data output is in either easy-to-read HTML tables, or a comma-delimited text file suitable for further analysis with spreadsheet, database, or statistical software. Data are now available for projects placed in service through 2016.
If you are looking for affordable housing in which to live this site may be used to locate rental housing supported by the LIHTC and having the applicable program rent and income restrictions. You may also benefit from the assistance of a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency. A list of HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agencies is available from http://www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/sfh/hcc/hcs.cfm or by calling toll-free 1-888-995-HOPE (4673).
Income limit information for LIHTC projects is available at http://www.huduser.org/datasets/il.html. Information on how to compute LIHTC maximum rents from HUD's Very Low Income Limits is available at https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il/il16/FAQs-16.pdf (see question 12 on page 5).
