Travois is dedicated to helping clients successfully navigate the complexities of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program and create homes for families.

Each project is unique, but all Low Income Housing Tax Credit projects share the same four steps — application, closing, construction and compliance. Watch a six-minute video below to learn more about these steps and how our team members are involved.

 


 

Greg Bland, environmental services director, explains two types of environmental reports: a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and a HUD Environmental Assessment. Often environmental reporting is a requirement for a Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LHITC) application and a funding requirement for both LIHTC and New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) projects.

 


 

Casey Cline, development director, discusses rehabilitating housing through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. She uses the acronym R.E.H.A.B. to introduce five important factors to consider to ensure a smooth rehab project.

 


 

Emily Siedlik, project coordinator, explains five factors that are critical to consider when planning a new construction project through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program in this video, the fifth in our series. She will use the B.U.I.L.D. acronym to walk viewers through the process.

 


In this video, Elizabeth Glynn, chief operating officer, provides information on Qualified Allocation Plans (QAPs). She will:

  • help you better understand your QAP,
  • suggest how the QAP can help you make project decisions, and
  • explain strategies to change your state’s QAP if it is a barrier to development in your community.

 


 

Our third informational video features our asset management team. Mike Price, director, and Crystal Banks-Mann, compliance manager, discuss the keys to successfully managing Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) projects.

 


 

Bryan Schuler, vice president for housing development, provides key information for getting started with a new Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) project.

 


 

We are excited to introduce our new informational video series! The video series will feature a wide range of topics to answer your FAQs.

Our début video covers basics of the New Markets Tax Credit program and helpful steps to present the program to your community. Phil Glynn, vice president for economic development, one of our NMTC experts, explains the financial structure, the project checklist and other important concepts.
