Bluetext is proud to announce its latest project launch for a new  venture co-founded by two leaders in their respective industries – The National Housing Trust and Novogradac & Company LLP.  Bluetext provided comprehensive digital strategy, design and development to bring this exciting venture from concept to reality.

PrezCat, an online catalogue of state and local affordable housing preservation policies launched in early 2014, allows affordable housing preservation developers, housing finance authorities, housing advocates, state and local decision makers and other stakeholder to easily search and query policies, data and programs that are most relevant to their short and long term needs. The catalogue will be useful for:

  • Housing Developers to triage their ability to refinance or meet a seller’s asking price while considering how to measure the likelihood of success in a given transaction.
  • Housing finance agencies to quickly compare their own tax credit Qualified Allocation Plan language to those listed in popularity order and based on our visitors’ clicks. of their peers.
  • Advocates to better measure both how their states are performing against the benchmarks set by their own Qualified allocation Plan and how that performance compares to states across the U.S. In response, those advocates can set the bar higher, year after year.
