California Releases Proposed LIHTC Program Changes
The California Tax Credit Allocation Committee recently released a memorandum that lists proposed changes for the state’s low-income housing tax credit program. For 2020, the $500 million in state credits will be available through the noncompetitive application process. The committee also seeks to add authority to utilize the 130 percent basis increase with state credits allocated from the new $500 million. The boost in state LIHTCs is intended to help developers build more affordable housing around the state.
