Each year, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocates funding to the states for low income housing assistance. Desert Skies Energy works closely with the Arizona Department of Housing to provide mandatory energy services for Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) projects.
ADOH publishes the annual Qualified Allocation Program or QAP once per year– this document serves as the guidelines for the LIHTC program. The QAP provides exact instructions for any project owner seeking tax credits. Regardless of whether your project is seeking 4% or 9% tax credits, we are able to help guide you through the program specifically helping you satisfy the utility allowance schedule for tenant paid utilities as well as the energy modeling for ensuring the project meets the energy requirements.
