Legislation in the Virginia state Senate would increase the annual allocation amount for the state low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) from $15 million to $150 million per year, plus any credit amount recaptured or disallowed the previous year. S.B. 47 applies to the Virginia housing opportunity tax credit, which was signed into law in April 2021.
