Affordable Housing Development in Napa


The City of Napa's Housing Authority works with housing developers to help create viable and innovative solutions needed to provide affordable housing. The Housing Authority assists both non-profit housing developers and for-profit developers, to obtain funding for affordable housing developments. 

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

The LIHTC is an indirect federal subsidy that finances low-income housing. The California Tax Credit Allocation Committee (TCAC) facilitates the investment of private capital into the development of affordable rental housing for low-income Californians. TCAC allocates federal and state tax credits to the developers of these projects in exchange for the tax credits. TCAC verifies that the developers have met all the requirements of the program and ensures the continued affordability and habitability of the developments for the succeeding 55 years.  Attend a tax credit workshop or learn more about the application process.
