$965k in Housing Credits Awarded for Statesboro Affordable Housing

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) recently announced that it will award $27,980,800 in 9% Housing Tax Credits to construct or preserve twenty-eight (28) affordable rental housing developments. Once complete, the properties will provide below-market rents to families, seniors, and persons requiring supportive housing.

The twenty-eight (28) awardees were among sixty-one (61) applications. The awards are equitably distributed across Georgia. The awards include nine (9) new construction rural developments, seven (7) new construction Atlanta Metropolitan developments, eight (8) new construction other metropolitan developments, and four (4) developments preserving existing housing. The selected developments will target varied household tenancies – Family, Housing for Older Persons (HFOP), and Elderly – and include supportive housing for persons with disabilities and housing integrated with supportive services for survivors of domestic sex trafficking.

The nearly $28 million in Housing Tax Credit awards will generate approximately $360 million in private equity contributions. The equity, in turn, will fund the construction or rehabilitation of 1,688 units affordable to low- and moderate-income Georgians earning up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI). In addition to the tax-credit-funded units, 89 market-rate units will be constructed or rehabilitated to produce mixed-income developments.

“Collectively, these developments will provide housing that is safe and affordable for thousands of Georgians,” said DCA Commissioner Christopher Nunn.  “The public-private partnerships made possible through this program are instrumental in the effort to address housing affordability for Georgia families, our workforce, and our seniors.”

The Housing Tax Credit program is the Nation’s and Georgia’s primary financing tool for newly constructed or rehabilitated affordable housing. The program represents a truly public-private partnership between the IRS, Georgia, developers, lenders, and equity providers. Georgia awards 9% Housing Tax Credits on an annual competitive basis; the applications applied under the 2022 Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP).
