The Geography of LIHTC

  • Key Research Questions

    • Where are Family LIHTC Projects Located?

    • Are LIHTC Projects Located in High Poverty Communities?

    • Are LIHTC Projects Located in Racially Concentrated Communities?

    • Are the Results Different In Metro vs. Non Metro Areas?


Lihtc in nc and poverty l.jpg

LIHTC in NC and Poverty

  • Nearly 2/3’s of projects were in neighborhoods with poverty rates greater than the state average in 2000

  • Almost 40% were located in “high” poverty neighborhoods with poverty greater than 20%

    • In comparison, only 19% of the State’s census tracts had poverty rates higher than 20% in 2000

  • State wide results were consistent with national and regional (the South) averages for poverty in LIHTC neighborhoods

Lihtc in nc and race l.jpg

LIHTC in NC and Race

  • The State’s family LIHTC projects are also more likely to be found in neighborhoods with high African American populations

    • ¾’s of projects are located in neighborhoods with African American population representation higher than the state average

    • More than ½ of LIHTC projects are in neighborhoods that are more than 40% African American

    • Projects appear more racially concentrated than national and regional averages for LIHTC neighborhoods

Variations in metro vs non metro areas l.jpg

Variations in Metro vs. Non-Metro Areas

  • The characteristics of LIHTC projects can vary significantly inside and outside of metropolitan areas

    • Analysis of Metro and Non-Metro family projects in NC finds that both metro and non-metro projects are located in more racially and economically concentrated areas

    • Metro LIHTC Projects (Neighborhood Avg.)

      • LIHTC Neighborhoods: 17% Poverty Rate, 47% African American

      • Metro Average for Poverty (10.9%) and % African American (21.8%)

    • Non-Metro LIHTC Projects (Neighborhood Avg.)

      • LIHTC Neighborhoods: 20% Poverty Rate, 43% African American

      • Non Metro Average for Poverty (15.2%) and % African American (22.7%)

Analysis of the state s largest regions l.jpg

Analysis of the State’s Largest Regions

  • Family projects are more likely to be found in racially and economically concentrated neighborhoods in the State’s three largest metropolitan areas

    • Results vary by region, but generally are consistent with statewide findings

Lihtc and hispanic latino neighborhoods l.jpg

LIHTC and Hispanic/Latino Neighborhoods

  • The Hispanic/Latino population is one of the fastest growing racial populations in North Carolina

  • Our analysis of the Hispanic/Latino population within LIHTC neighborhoods indicates that projects are generally not clustered in areas with large Latino populations

    • But, when analyzing both African American and Latino populations, data suggests that racially concentrated African American LIHTC neighborhoods do contain a substantial Latino population


Lihtc and hispanic latino neighborhoods32 l.jpg

LIHTC and Hispanic/Latino Neighborhoods

  • The average LIHTC neighborhood contains a Hispanic/Latino population of 6.3%

    • (4.7% of NC’s pop. Is Latino)

  • The average combined Hispanic/Latino and African American population within LIHTC neighborhoods is 52.8% (6.2% of this population appears to be Latino)


Access to suburban lihtc projects l.jpg

Access to Suburban LIHTC Projects

  • Measuring African American access to suburban LIHTC projects

    • Preliminary analysis of projects found in blocks in suburban areas outside of Raleigh seem to indicate some African American access, but not extensive access

      • More analysis with better data is needed to assess this phenomenon

Temporal trends l.jpg

Temporal Trends

  • Has concentration by race and poverty increased or decreased from 1990 to 2004?

  • Analyzed the average neighborhood poverty rate and percentage African American for projects based upon date

    • Analysis three periods of data (5 year intervals)

      • 1990 to 1994

      • 1995 to 1999

      • 2000 to 2004

        • Note fewer projects for analysis during the 2000 to 2004 cycle


Temporal trends38 l.jpg

Temporal Trends

  • Results:

    • More recent projects are located in neighborhoods with a smaller African American population

    • Mixed results for poverty rates

      • The average poverty rate for neighborhoods with projects awarded from 1995 to 1999 declined, but more recent projects were located in higher poverty neighborhoods

        • This could be due to the smaller sample of recent projects available for analysis

Temporal Trends


Conclusions l.jpg

Conclusions

  • Family LIHTC projects are clustered in more racially concentrated higher poverty neighborhoods

  • Both metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas exhibit these trends

  • Concentration in Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods appears to be less severe

  • Temporal analysis indicates more recent projects are being built in less racially concentrated communities, but poverty results are mixed


Notes on the data and methods 1 l.jpg

Notes on the Data and Methods 1

  • Family LIHTC projects were defined by identifying projects that did not have an “elderly” target population (as defined by the State)

  • This analysis covers projects from 1990 to 2004 and utilized both the HUD LIHTC database and State LIHTC records

  • “Neighborhoods” were defined by 2000 Census Tract boundaries


Notes on the data and methods 2 l.jpg

Notes on the Data and Methods 2

  • Due to missing geographic data in the HUD database and incomplete address data in the State database, some projects could not be mapped for the analysis

  • Of the 986 LIHTC projects identified for this analysis, 152 were not analyzed due to missing geographic data
