To qualify as affordable in this context,
a project must meet the following requirements:

  1. Rent and income restrictions must be imposed, monitored, and enforced by a governmental agency for at least 15 years after Final Endorsement,

  2. There must be a recorded Regulatory Agreement (LURA) requiring the project to meet at least the minimum LIHTC restrictions of 20% of units at 50% of area median income (AMI), or 40% of units at 60% of AMI, with economic rents (i.e. the portion paid by the residents) on those units no greater than LIHTC rents, and

  3. The achievable tax-credit rents must be at least 10% below market rents.

To qualify as Section 8 in this context, a project must have a project-based Section 8 contract for 90% or more of the total units in place for 15 years after Final Endorsement.
