Best practices in state Low Income Housing Tax Credit plans: Following up on the Furman Center's excellent recent HUD study of the efficacy of pro-integration incentives in state LIHTC plans, we updated our 2008 50-state survey of state LIHTC plans with this new report: Building Opportunity II: A Fair Housing Assessment of State Low Income Housing Tax Credit Plans. The takeaway: with some strong progress in a few key states, and less ambitious fair housing incentives starting to take root in other states, we still have a long way to go -- the Department of Treasury needs to take a much stronger leadership role.
From the 6th National Housing Mobility Conference: we've posted the annotated agenda (with powerpoints & resources) along with photos from the recent conference in Chicago - check it out.
