Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC)

The Qualified Allocation Plan defines the process by which New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority will allocate Low Income Housing Tax Credits to affordable rental housing developments throughout the State of New Hampshire.

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program provides a strong incentive for private investment in affordable rental housing. It is currently the largest source of federal capital subsidy to create and preserve affordable rental housing. The LIHTC program gives investors a dollar-for-dollar reduction in federal tax liability in exchange for providing funding to affordable ho using developments.

If you have questions about the LIHTC program, please contact Elnaz Najdmazhari, Program Manager at (603) 310-9217.

Copies of the QAP are available here on New Hampshire Housing’s website or, to obtain a copy by mail, contact Jessica McCarthy, Administrative Assistant, (603) 310-9272. To receive updates about the QAP process, please click here to sign up.
