Low Income Housing Tax Credits & Transit in Hawaii, 2019-2020

The Hawaii Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) for 2019-2020 states that project location and market demand can earn an application up to 6 additional points.

The points awarded will be based on HHFDC’s evaluation of factors such as, but not limited to:

if project is located in a county’s urban core/district (preference) versus rural district and is accessible to employment opportunities and shopping; and recreational, medical and educational facilities are located in the immediate vicinity of the project site.

  •  Located in a County’s urban core - 4 points
  •  Located in an urbanized area - 3 points
  •  Located in a master planned community - 2 points
  •  Located in a rural district in proximity to employment opportunities and medical and educational facilities - 1 point

·         The project may earn two additional points for availability of a mass transit station/stop within ½ mile. For Oahu, the term “mass transit” is exclusive to rail. For the neighbor islands, the term “mass transit” is not exclusive to rail.
