Overview of Compliance Requirements at Tax Credit Sites with HOME Funding
Funds from HUD’s HOME program and LIHTCs are often used together to finance affordable rental housing sites. To establish affordable rents in many markets, a site’s rents may not be enough to pay off a conventional mortgage. As a result, the equity raised from tax credits may not be sufficient to provide all of the additional capital required by the site. Often, HOME funds can be used to finance the remaining gap.
