4% Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC)

The 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) is a companion financing tool to the Mortgage Revenue Bond Program (MMRB). It finances these MMRBs through the sale of tax-exempt private activity bonds.

LIHTCs can be syndicated to generate part of the required equity a borrower must contribute to the financing, or can be utilized to offset the borrower’s tax payments.
