Live Online Event | Giving Due Credit: Balancing Priorities in State Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Allocation Policies
Recorded live on August 3, 2016
With public funding to address the housing insecurity crisis limited, existing resources must be used as efficiently as possible to provide quality homes that expand resident opportunity. The focus must be not only on the amount of money spent, but also on how affordable housing can improve the lives of lower-income people.
In this webinar, the Enterprise Policy Development & Research team and experts from state housing agencies representatives examine this crucial topic. The foundation of this interactive session is "Giving Due Credit: Balancing Priorities in State Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Allocation Policies", a new analysis of state Qualified Allocation Plans (QAPs). The report identifies leading strategies for balancing cost-effectiveness with the preservation and creation of healthy, quality affordable housing that increases opportunity, including both revitalizing distressed communities and building in neighborhoods of opportunity.
The webinar highlight keys findings and examples from the report and features insight and analysis from practitioners from across the country, who will describe how they balance competing demands in their QAPs.
