Over the past decade, green building strategies have become increasingly integrated into the nearly 100,000 units constructed annually under the Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, and significant strides have been made toward producing higher quality, more efficient dwellings that mitigate negative environmental impacts. The LIHTC program and the state-level Qualified Allocation Plans (QAPs) that guide the distribution of the tax credits are an effective means to increase the adoption of green building criteria in affordable housing design and construction, according to the authors.
