The Housing Tax Credit Program allocates federal and state tax credits to owners of qualified
rental properties who reserve all or a portion of their units for occupancy for low income
DCA's process for allocating funds through the OAH is outlined in Georgia's Qualified Allocation
Plan. This document describes (1) the federal and state resources available for financing rental
housing through the plan, (2) the legislative requirements for distributing these resources, (3)
the State's preference for the location and type of such housing, (4) the process used for
evaluating applications and awarding these resources, and (5) program compliance
requirements and procedures.
DCA offers a streamlined, single application to access funds available through the HOME Rental
Housing Loan and Housing Tax Credit programs. The competitive application process for these
funds occurs in the spring of each year. DCA offers only one annual application cycle for these funds.
