ABSTRACT
Local housing authorities increasingly are relying on tax-exempt governmental bonds to finance multifamily housing in the U.S. State and local housing authorities have issued $1.7 billion in governmental bonds to finance 41,615 units of housing in 2002. Under the private-activity bond restrictions, tax-exempt bonds issued for such projects are limited to a share of a state's $75-per-capita state volume cap or a minimum of $225 million per state.
