LISC Talks: The LIHTC Market After the Election The prospect of a reduction in corporate tax rates as a result of the Presidential election has created uncertainty in the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) market.  How are investors responding?  What has been the effect of this uncertainty in terms of pricing?  Joe Hagan, President of the National Equity Fund, and Denise Scott, Executive Vice President for Programs at LISC, discussed what is going on in the market right now and how you can potentially mitigate the effects of tax cuts on your affordable housing projects. Archived webinar and PowerPoint.
