IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WNC, a national investor in real estate and community development initiatives, announced today it has closed WNC Institutional Tax Credit Fund 41, L.P. (WNC Corp. 41), a $114.7 million institutional low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) fund.

Estimated to include 1,674 affordable housing units in total, WNC Corp. 41’s portfolio is comprised of 24 family and senior housing communities scheduled for new construction and rehabilitation. The properties will be located in 11 states, including Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

We are thrilled to continue our partnerships that pursue the growth of the nation’s existing affordable housing supply, and look forward to partnering with new developers in our quest.”
