The Housing Credit Group is an organization of professionals that is engaged in the development of affordable rental housing using the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC). Membership consists of developers, owners, investors, syndicators and lenders involved in LIHTC deals.
The Housing Credit Group analyzes national issues and leverages the political power of the National Association of Home Builders to support its members. The group’s continuous lobbying efforts have paved the way for program changes that benefit developers who use LIHTC as a financing resource for affordable rental housing.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Database Tool
The LIHTC Database Tool analyzes data extracted from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) LIHTC database and the American Community Survey to determine whether there is:
- a correlation between LIHTC units and the income tract in which they are developed
- a relationship between the concentration of LIHTC units and variables commonly associated with socio-economic immobility
HCG Associate and Steering Committee members automatically receive access to the LIHTC Mapping Tool as a part of their membership package. A la cart subscriptions are available to the LIHTC Mapping Tool.
