Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP)

The Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP) credential is a specialized designation for professionals working in the affordable housing industry through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program.

Successful HCCPs understand the regulatory and compliance issues and details involved with the LIHTC program, which supports safe, decent and affordable rental housing for so many American families. Property owners, developers, asset managers, state housing agencies and others turn to HCCP designees when they need a professional with a thorough understanding of the complex net of LIHTC guidelines, regulations and compliance requirements.

To support this one-of-a-kind designation, NAHB:

  • Works with HCCP Distributors to provide education, training, and exams,
  • Offers a regularly updated HCCP exam, and the HCCP designation for those who pass the exam,
  • Publishes a quarterly newsletter, The Credential, for HCCP designees, and
  • Regularly hosts continuing education events, including webinars on a variety of LIHTC and affordable housing issues and topics.
