  • The federal low-income housing tax credit (“LIHTC”) is the largest production resource for affordable rental housing. Advocacy groups have critiques of the program’s administration, but a recent study used to support their arguments contains multiple controversial elements. In evaluating this report, Mark Shelburne also discusses racial desegregation, concentrating poverty, preservation, community revitalization, and other related housing policy issues. This article concludes that those researching the LIHTC program should communicate with state administrators in order to avoid analytical flaws.
