Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition
Founded in 1988, the AHTCC is a trade association of housing professionals who advocate for affordable rental housing financed with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit). Our for-profit and non-profit members—including syndicators, investors, lenders, developers, legal and accounting professionals, state allocating agencies, public agencies, and coalitions—seek to preserve, expand and improve the Housing Credit and complementary programs through legislative and regulatory outreach and education. Collectively, AHTCC members have financed or developed well over half of all affordable housing nationwide. See a list of our members here.
For over 35 years, the AHTCC has been at the forefront of every effort to expand, strengthen and protect the Housing Credit. The AHTCC was founded in 1988 to advocate to make the Housing Credit permanent, and quickly assumed a leading role in coordinating the efforts of many concerned stakeholders, both on Capitol Hill and throughout the country. The Housing Credit was made permanent in 1993, and since then, the AHTCC has remained a leader of efforts to expand and strengthen the program, including the 2020 enactment of a minimum 4 percent Housing Credit rate and the 2018 enactment of a 12.5 percent Housing Credit allocation increase for 2018-2021 and a flexibility known as “income averaging”.
