Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP)

The Grove Apartments (Oak Park)

The Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) sets forth the criteria for evaluating all projects that apply for a tax credit allocation.  The QAP sets forth the rules under which IHDA offers affordable housing development funding in the form of federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC). The QAP describes the selection criteria and application requirements for receiving these federal tax credits and tax-exempt bonds.  The QAP takes effect upon the approval of the IHDA board and the governor.

IHDA is pleased to make available for public comment a draft of its 2024-2025 QAP and a draft of its Design, Construction & Regulatory Compliance Requirements.
