State and local governmental agencies and joint powers authorities can issue tax-exempt mortgage revenue bonds (MRBs) or mortgage credit certificates (MCCs) to help low- to moderate-income households secure qualified home improvement or qualified rehabilitation loans. These agencies and authorities may issue MRBs to finance loans that are below market rates. Also these entities may issue mortgage credit certificates that can be used to reduce the homeowner’s federal tax liability. Program participants must meet income limits and qualifying loans must adhere to federal requirements.
