29 Mar 2023 Georgia QAP Factsheet
Georgia is a national leader in green affordable housing policy and has maintained the 2022 sustainable building certification requirement for all Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) projects in 2023.
Through careful design and construction details, green buildings promote safe, healthy, and efficient homes. Green building certification, which requires third-party verification, provides an added layer of quality assurance. The QAP sustainability standards are an important step in ensuring high quality, holistic affordable housing for low-income Georgia residents.
The 2023 Georgia QAP has most of the same sustainability requirements as the 2022 version, which apply to both 4% bond deals and 9% credit projects. The 2023 version (as with 2022 and 2021) does not require energy audits for rehab projects.
This fact sheet breaks down the sustainability requirements in the 2023 Georgia QAP, offers tips and tools for meeting them, and provides guidance on selecting the appropriate certification program for your Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) application.
