Fourteen planned income-restricted housing projects in Colorado have been awarded state and federal 4 percent low-income housing tax credits.

The Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, which allocates both types of tax credits in the state, released a list this week of the projects. Combined, they will have 1,373 income-restricted units.

Developers sell the tax credits to investors to raise equity for their projects, according to CHFA. The equity reduces the amount of debt financing or other funding sources needed to make the development financially feasible with the rent limits required under the programs.

CHFA also allocates federal 9 percent tax credits. The organization announced in May that it had awarded those credits to 13 projects.
