NEW YORK CITY—Even as a new Freddie Mac survey of multifamily industry participants found that maintaining an adequate supply of affordable housing is a key concern, one of the most important instruments for doing so is on firmer footing than ever. CohnReznick LLP reports that properties financed with Low Income Housing Tax Credits enjoy better operating metrics today than at any time in the LIHTC program’s 31-year history. The accounting, tax and advisory firm released its latest survey of LIHTC participants Thursday in conjunction with its 2017 Annual Fall Affordable Housing Conference, running in Las Vegas through Friday.
