HUD Designates 2020 DDAs, QCTs

HUD designated Difficult Development Areas (DDAs) and Qualified Census Tracts (QCTs) for 2020. DDAs are areas with high land, construction and utility costs relative to the area median income and are based on Fair Market Rents, income limits, the 2010 census counts, and five-year American Community Survey (ACS) data. QCTs are areas where either 50 percent or more of the households in the tract have an income, which is less than 60 percent of the AMI or the tract’s poverty rate is at least 25 percent.

HUD Extends Effective Date for Certain DDAs and QCTs

HUD has revised the effective date for designations of “Difficult Development Areas” (DDAs) and “Qualified Census Tracts” (QCTs) for purposes of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) approved for Federal disaster-related individual assistance. This Notice extends from 730 days to 850 days the period for which the 2015 lists of QCTs and DDAs are effective for projects located in an area that was approved for individual assistance, not on subsequent lists of DDAs or QCTs; and submitted applications while the area was a 2015 QCT or DDA.  Click here to learn more.
