The Communities of Opportunity Tax Credit Program (COTCP) is a Virginia income tax credit program amended and reenacted by the 2022 General Assembly [§58.1-439.12:04 of the Code of Virginia]. It is intended to decentralize poverty by enhancing low-income Virginians’ access to affordable housing units in higher-income areas. To do this, COTCP provides Virginia income tax credits to landlords with property in eligible census tracts throughout Virginia who participate in the Housing Choice Voucher program.
