Multifamily Tax-Exempt Housing Bonds

TSAHC has issued more than $730 million in multifamily tax-exempt bonds to help build or preserve affordable rental housing in Texas. We receive 10% of the state’s annual private activity bond volume cap for rental projects and have the authority to issue everywhere in Texas.  We target our funding in areas and for housing types that meet Targeted Housing Needs that our board establishes each year. These bonds are purchased by private investors and are not debt of the state.

Because the multifamily or rental housing private activity bond program can be used with the 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credit program, we recommend that developers review the latest information and application materials from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs’ (TDHCA) Multifamily Program Division. Please contact TDHCA if you have questions about the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program.
