Tax Credit Training & SHCM™ Exam

The Specialist in Housing Credit Management® (SHCM®) certification has been developed by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) especially for management professionals involved with properties developed and operated under the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. The SHCM is designed by management professionals for management professionals to ensure they have attained the knowledge, experience and competence required to excel in the housing credit property management industry.

As experienced affordable housing management professionals know, the LIHTC program is the primary production tool for creating new affordable housing properties across every state in the country, and it is also the most important tool for rehabilitating and preserving the nation’s existing stock of aging affordable housing. To maximize their careers, managers in the affordable housing industry must be able to demonstrate their experience and expertise in mastering the complex requirements of the LIHTC program. Earning your SHCM enables you to do just that.

SHCM certification is valid for one year and must be renewed annually each September 1st. Renewal consists of six hours of housing credit specific coursework or training by an approved provider* per year and $165 renewal fee. For more information on the SHCM Designation, visit
