Pairing Tax Credits To Help Create Affordable Housing

Federal and state tax incentives offer opportunities to help ensure projects combining historic buildings and affordability are financially feasible, as when the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) is combined or “twinned” with the Historic Tax Credit (HTC). That’s a good thing, because many cities confront a dearth of affordable housing on one hand, and a need to put historic properties to more productive use on the other.
