NHT is alarmed by a growing trend of private investors in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit) partnerships starting to systematically challenge the transfer rights of nonprofit general partners and disrupt the normal exit process, threatening the long-term affordability of properties and the well-being of residents with low incomes. We have developed a “red flags” list to help Housing Credit developers and affordable housing stakeholders identify if a property approaching Year 15 may be at risk of a threat or dispute with an investor.
The stories in the Where Will We Live? gallery paint a vivid picture that helps to explain a complicated issue, demonstrating that a well-documented story can change perspectives and inspire action through empathy and shared experiences. This toolkit will help other housing advocates do the same.
