Vermont gains housing credit qualified census tracts for 2013

Posted by: Leslie Black-Plumeau on 5/2/2012

Next year, Vermont will gain eight qualified census tracts for the purposes of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program.   Buildings located in qualified census tracts receive increased funding through the housing credit program because the “eligible basis” can be increased by 130 percent. 

Qualified census tracts have at least 50 percent of households with incomes less than 60 percent of the area median income or have poverty rates of at least 25 percent. 

HUD is making the new designations on the basis of new data from the 2010 Decennial Census and the 2006-2010 American Community Survey.
