It’s no secret California is facing a housing supply crisis, and needs every tool in the shed to get more units on the market.

Among those tools are low-income housing tax credits, a federal program that helps subsidize affordable housing development up and down the state of California by leveraging private dollars in construction.

Affordable housing advocates celebrated the 2019 and 2020 budgets for including $500 million in these credits, which they said was desperately needed money to keep struggling families sheltered.

But a new report from Smart Cities Prevail, a research nonprofit focused on prevailing wage and labor standards, shows that some of these credits are “disproportionately” benefiting wealthier investors and leaving low-income workers in the dust.
