New Study Reveals Incomes and Rent Burdens of Tax Credit Households
A study entitled "What Can We Learn about the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program by Looking at the Tenants?" was recently released by Katherine O’Regan, Associate Professor at NYU Wagner Graduate School and the Furman Center, and Keren Horn, Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The study describes the incomes and rent burdens of tenants living in Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties. The authors used tenant-level data from 15 states, representing over 30 percent of all LIHTC units and all regions of the country.
