An owner is not required to follow the requirements of the Uniform Relocation Act (URA) of 1970 simply by using the LIHTC program to finance affordable housing. But there are few LIHTC projects being rehabilitated in the 21st century with financial structures that do not include some federal funding that triggers the provisions of the URA, or those of Section 104(d) of the Housing and Community Development Act (HCDA) of 1974. Developers and property managers must understand how the URA applies to their projects and how to fit their requirements into the overall goals for their communities.
