Minimum Design and Construction Requirements
The Minimum Design and Construction Requirements (MDCR) were created to address issues related to the design, construction, maintenance, marketing, life cycle costs and aesthetic concerns for developments utilizing low income housing tax credits (LIHTC), and/or developments financed by Virginia Housing. Match the MDCR year with the date from the loan application. For developments receiving LIHTC, match the MDCR year with the allocation year from the tax credit application.
Submission requirements for developments applying for Virginia Housing financing are listed on the Architectural & Engineering Review sheets which can be found at the conclusion of the MDCR. Design submission requirements for the LIHTC program are contained in the tax credit application
