Why a QCT/DDA?

What is a QCT / DDA?

A QCT is a census tract where the average median income is less than 60% of the county median income, or where the poverty rate is greater than 25%. A DDA is an area that has high construction, land and utility costs, relative to the Area Median Gross Income (AMGI).

QCT / DDA Trend

The 30-percent boost in LIHTCs associated with QCTs has helped finance more than one-fourth of all LIHTC projects and approximately one-third of projects in recent years.

In 2004, the latest year for which data is available, 47.5 percent of LIHTC projects and 56.1 percent of LIHTC units were located in a QCT

The chart below suggests an increase of 3.3% (in units) per year, at this rate all units will be located within a QCT/DDA by 2016!
