Income tax credits; housing choice vouchers; eligible housing areas. Expands the definition of "eligible housing area" for purposes of the housing choice voucher tax credit to include census tracts in the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News Metropolitan Statistical Area in which less than 10 percent of the population lives below the poverty level. Landlords who rent qualified housing units within such areas are eligible for an income tax credit. Current law only applies to such areas within the Richmond Metropolitan Statistical Area. This bill is identical to SB 1656.
