Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP)

Minnesota Housing's Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) describes how Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (HTC) are distributed to multifamily rental projects. The QAP combines state and federally legislated requirements as well as priorities from Minnesota Housing's Strategic Plan. The QAP and Self-Scoring Worksheet set the overall funding priorities for the Annual Consolidated Request for Proposals (Consolidated RFP).

To learn more about the HTC and QAP process, review the recorded webinars from recent QAPs below. The recordings were designed for community members and others interested in the strategic and policy direction of the QAP. To review the most current QAP and Self-Scoring Worksheet, visit the Housing Tax Credits webpage.

Minnesota Housing's QAP is effective for two years. Minnesota Housing forward allocates HTCs, meaning each Consolidated Request for Proposals (RFP), we allocate HTCs for the next year. The chart below helps illustrate the QAP years, and how the year aligns with the Consolidated RFP and the HTCs.

The timeline allows for careful consideration and review of all public comments, including a second public comment period in the fall. Presentation and final action on the 2024-2025 QAP and Self-Scoring Worksheet are expected to occur at Minnesota Housing’s board meeting in November 2022.
