In follow-up to my previous post, I am providing some additional analysis of the Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) rankings of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) applications in Delaware for 2010.

Ranked for Credits:

Preservation Rehabilitation Pool – (a) Canterbury Estates (Severn Development Company) in Bridgeville, Delaware, which includes 24 family garden apartments; (b) Dunbarton Estates (Severn Development Company) in Georgetown, Delaware, which includes 32 family garden apartments; and (c) B’nai B’rith House (Connolly & Partners) in Claymont, Delaware, which includes 208 elderly high-rise apartments.

Homeless Pool – The only applicant was not scored because it did not meet threshold.


Two applicants’ were ranked conditional upon receiving favorable federal funding decisions and two applicants were not ranked because they did not meet threshold.

The rankings include a footnote-note cautioning that the rankings are preliminary and a more extensive review of the applications will occur.  The review includes “reasonableness of costs, feasibility and construction timetables.”
