Ever wonder why it's not easier to build affordable apartments?  A new interactive tool developed by the Urban Institute illustrates the mathematical necessity of tax credits, loans, tenant income/rent and grants in paying for the costs of affordable housing.  Check it out to see if you can make the math work!

With a constantly evolving funding toolbox, VHFA's skilled development and multifamily management staff work with Vermont's affordable rental housing developers and managers day in and day out to overcome these challenges and maximize the number of affordable apartments available for low-income Vermonters.
