The Legal Aid Society of Southwest Ohio, on behalf of a group of Ohio legal aid programs, engaged Abt Global to conduct an analysis of the locations of low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) properties and units awarded by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) between 2006 and 2015. The analysis presented in this report reviews the history of LIHTC allocations in Ohio to show the extent to which past LIHTC awards have placed family housing in areas that are not racially or economically concentrated. The focus of the analysis is on housing for families with children and on metropolitan areas in Ohio, and the intention is to help inform OHFA’s efforts to broaden opportunities for families with children to live in areas of high opportunity.
