Novogradac Webinar on the Impact of the OCC-FDIC Proposed Rule on CRA (March 2020) - On-Demand

According to the Affordable Housing Investors Council, 85 percent of the annual low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) equity investment in the country is generated through banks motivated by Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) obligations. And there is purportedly a greater percentage of potential new markets tax credit (NMTC) investment through these CRA-motivated banks. Additionally, according to the National Park Service, more than 50 percent of historic tax credit (HTC) properties are in low or moderate-income census tracts and 75 percent of historic properties are in economically distressed areas–both of which are targets of CRA investment. This webinar panel will analyze what the proposed regulations would mean for affordable housing and community development.
