U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan yesterday announced that HUD has approved requests from 26 states for over $1 billion in funding through the Tax Credit Assistance Program (TCAP), provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
Senator Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) has proposed legislation that would make $230 million in funding immediately available to begin work on shovel-ready affordable housing developments in flood-ravaged areas of Indiana. The legislation would clarifiy that disaster housing credits in Indiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas and Wisconsin would be eligible for the Tax Credit Exchange Program.
The Minnesota Housing Finance Agency recently published its selection process and criteria for eligible projects applying for funding through the Tax Credit Exchange and Tax Credit Assistance (TCAP) Programs.
NH&RA will continue to update the ARRA resource page below as information is made available.
Minnesota Housing has announced changes and new timeline for the Agency’s requests for proposals.
Minnesota Housing has issued a notice outlining proposed revisions to its qualified allocation plan (QAP) and procedural manual for its 2010 low-income housing tax credit program.
