This product is an E-supplement to GAO-10-1022R. To further assess state implementation of the Tax Credit Assistance Program (TCAP) and Section 1602 Program, we asked managers of state housing finance agencies in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands to complete a web survey. Our questionnaire asked about the status of program delivery, program design, safeguards and controls, expected results, and challenges to implementation. We designed and tested the self-administered questionnaire in consultation with experts, representatives of housing finance stakeholders, and state agency managers. Survey data collection took place in November and early December of 2009. We received usable responses from all 54 agencies.
