Demand for affordable housing is growing across the country, including in emerging markets like Denver. However, capital is catching on to the need for affordable housing, both on new development projects and LIHTC-backed rehab projects. This capital has been an important aspect of bringing more affordable housing to markets suffering from a housing shortage.

“Investors such as banks and insurance companies are realizing that there is incredible value in LIHTC-backed rehab projects,” Anand Kannan, leader of the preservation and development teams at Community Preservation Partners, tells GlobeSt.com. “In addition to offsetting tax burdens and providing a yield that is competitive to market-rate investments, an affordable housing investment comes with significantly lower risk of vacancy.”
