Georgia Qualified Allocation Plan for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits

Georgia Qualified Allocation Plan for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits
Location Atlanta Georgia
Organization Georgia Health Policy Center

This health impact assessment, or HIA, will inform the 2015 Georgia Qualified Allocation Plan for low-income housing tax credits. The plan is required each year as the Internal Revenue Service allocates housing tax credits to state agencies, which then award the credits to developers of qualified projects. The HIA, conducted by the Georgia Health Policy Center, will focus on the proposed criteria for allocating the tax credits and consider how these criteria will affect health through the effects of decisions on housing for vulnerable populations and community development. The project will focus on engagement by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, real estate developers, state regional commissions, community representatives, and relevant federal agencies to build support for implementation of HIA recommendations.
