What is a leading way to promote developing supportive housing across the nation? To create incentives in Qualified Allocation Plans (QAPs). QAPs are the document that housing credit agencies use to state their priorities and regulations for allocating low income housing tax credits. CSH is pleased to present “Housing Credit Policies in 2012 that Promote Supportive Housing.” This new report builds on our assessment of 2010 and 2011 QAP policies and examines the strategies housing credit agencies adopted to foster and encourage supportive housing development, highlighting significant changes made within QAPs this year. It also describes trends in the industry, and calls out specific examples of policies that improve the production, quality or financing of supportive housing.
