LIHTC, 1602, TCAP, MSHDA Direct Lending and Pass-Through Programs:

(Direct Lending programs include: developments funded under tax-exempt and taxable bond financing programs, including One Percent, 80/20, 70/30, TEAM and HOME TEAM Advantage.)

Due to changes from HERA and the elimination of HUD's Hold Harmless Policy, there are now seven (7) different sets of income and rent limits for these programs. The applicable set of limits is based on a property's placed in service date, as discussed below.

Placed in Service (PIS) Dates:

  • For acquisition/rehab projects, use the projects* acquisition PIS date
  • For rehab only developments, use the projects* rehab PIS date
  • For new construction, use the projects* Certification of Occupancy date
  • PIS dates will change for properties that get:
    • A second allocation of LIHTC; or
    • 1602 funds added to current properties

* Each building in the project must be treated as a separate project for LIHTC purposes unless the owner has/will elected the buildings to be collectively treated as one property per the 8609 Part II question 8b. If buildings are collectively treated as one project, the PIS date of the first building is the applicable PIS date.
