MaineHousing will be distributing more than $3 million in 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits to six development projects that received the highest number of points under the Qualified Allocation Plan scoring system.


The projects will create 207 family units and 83 elderly units.


Development Director Mark Wiesendanger said the developers were given notices to proceed in mid-December. Fourteen projects from 12 developers were submitted, but one was withdrawn, totaling 572 units and $6.6 million in requested credit. Eight projects were family housing, while six were elderly.
