Philbrick, Slade receive certification


erin & joshCongratulations to VHFA Multifamily Operations Specialists Erin Philbrick and Joshua Slade for receiving their Tax Credit Specialist certification from the National Center for Housing Management (NCHM) — the result of three days of training and exams held in Boston last month.

Tax Credit Specialists exhibit a high level of knowledge of the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, which creates and preserves affordable rental housing for lower-income households.

In the program, owners of qualifying rental housing receive a reduction in federal tax liability over a 10-year period if they agree to certain operating restrictions for at least a 15-year period.

LIHTCs have produced most of the recently-developed affordable rental housing in Vermont.

You can search our database of LIHTC properties going back to 1987.
