New Consolidated Planning/CHAS Data
HUD has released an update of the Comprehensive Housing Affordable Strategy (CHAS) data, which provides HUD-defined income limits (primarily 30, 50, and 80 percent of median income). Among the latest revisions to the LIHTC database is the addition of data for projects placed in service through 2006. This includes 389 projects and 34,224 units placed in service between 1995 and 2006 that were not included in previous updates.
This update was the first to include data from new survey questions on amount of allocated tax credits, amounts of HUD subsidies in project financing, information on elected set-asides, and the presence of project-based rental assistance.
