We’re creating opportunities for families to thrive.
At Hunt Capital Partners, our mission is to redefine possibilities in affordable housing development. As a leading force, we navigate the complexities of various housing programs to create lasting impact.
Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)
Where households can thrive
Created as part of the Tax Credit Act of 1986 and made permanent in 1993, the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) represents a significant majority of affordable housing in the United States. The program has created or preserved more than 52,000 properties and an estimated 3.5 million units from 1987 to 2021. LIHTC investments have played a critical role in empowering developers to construct new affordable homes and sustain existing ones across urban and rural markets.
Through a robust asset management platform and a partner-first approach, we have a history of building relationships with developers and investors in the LIHTC space.
Making redevelopment possible
The Historic Tax Credit (HTC) program is administered by the National Park Service (NPS) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to encourage private sector investment in the rehabilitation and adaptive re-use of historic buildings. Whether your property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places or contributes architecturally to a National Register district, Hunt Capital Partners can work to arrange Historic Tax Credits equal to 20 percent of the qualified rehabilitation expenditures.
Created as part of the Tax Reform Act of 1976, the Historic Tax Credit has rehabilitated more than 42,000 buildings, attracted over $84 billion in private funds, and generated 2.41 million jobs.
Housing those most in need
Hunt Capital Partners has a track record of providing housing for special communities with special needs, including survivors of domestic and sexual violence, homeless veterans, the mentally ill, and people living with HIV/AIDS.
State housing agencies overseeing the LIHTC program have the discretion to adopt plans and policies that address the specific needs of communities most at risk. With experience in navigating the ever-changing Qualified Allocation Process (QAP), we advise developers on how to create projects that will have the most positive impact in the communities they serve.
Reimagining tribal living
The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program is a tool for tribal communities to take housing development into their own hands. It has been instrumental in providing affordable multifamily rental housing for tribal members throughout the nation. By utilizing LIHTC, tribes have been able to create housing, thus becoming economic drivers in their local communities.
The housing credit program has helped address underfunded housing programs in key tribal areas. Hunt Capital Partners has partnered with 12 Tribal Housing Authorities to develop 346 affordable homes across 8 states. The low-income housing tax credit program is a proven tool that facilitates the creation of affordable and culturally significant housing, thereby promoting the well-being and prosperity of tribal members.
Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD)
Partner with the RAD experts
The Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program provides Housing Authorities with a suite of tools to rehabilitate and preserve public housing. This involves a combination of public and private affordable housing resources, including tax-exempt bonds, third-party financing, Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), public housing capital funds, current operating reserves, and project-based rental assistance.
Hunt Capital Partners is a leader in these complex public-private partnerships. As part of the Hunt Family of Companies, HCP brings a variety of services and experiences to the table, working with all project stakeholders – including HUD, state allocating agencies, housing authorities and their residents – to achieve success.
HCP has been involved in the revitalization, rehabilitation, and reconstruction of 36 properties, utilizing RAD with more than 10 Housing Authorities. These properties consist of over 3,600 units and included the syndication of over $265 million in federal and state tax credits.
