Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP)
The Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP) is a specialized designation for developers, property managers, asset managers and others working in the affordable housing industry through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program.
Requirements for achieving the HCCP designation
Successful completion of the HCCP Exam ($175 fee; $100 for retakes)
Minimum of two years' experience in the LIHTC industry by graduation (Those who fail to meet this requirement may consider themselves an HCCP-Candidate until reaching two years of experience.)
In order to maintain your HCCP designation in good standing, you must complete four hours of LIHTC-related continuing education (CE) each year and submit your CE form with the annual renewal fee ($175 for members or $235 for non-members). HCCPs and HCCP-candidates will receive their renewal invoice via email. If your contact information has changed, please update it using the online form.
