What CARH Does…


The Council for Affordable and Rural Housing (CARH) serves stakeholders in the affordable housing industry through the latest education, training, networking opportunities, and advocacy of key interests. We provide our members with the support needed so they can continue their work to ensure that low-income residents of rural America have access to safe, reliable, and affordable housing. Rural housing naturally tells a story – Every time a new family moves into an affordable home, we have the opportunity to ask our audience, “if this family didn’t have this home, where would they be?”

Tax Credit Percentages

The IRS publishes monthly credit percentages that apply to low-income housing tax credit buildings placed in service that month. There are two rates: the 70% present value credit (PVC) and the 30% present value credit. The maximum 70% rate is available for low-income new construction and substantial rehabilitation expenditures that are not federally subsidized. The maximum 30% rate applies to acquisition expenditures and to federally subsidized low-income new construction or substantial rehabilitation expenditures.

For March 2022:

9%: 7.44% ~ 4%: 3.19%
