Daniel J. Kraft

Daniel joined Applegate & Thorne-Thomsen in 2017. His practice focuses on affordable housing and community development transactions, representing private developers and tax credit investors on projects financed through Low Income Housing Tax Credits, New Market Tax Credits, HUD programs and numerous state and local housing assistance programs.

Prior to joining the firm, Daniel represented lenders and developers in the acquisition, disposition and financing of office, industrial and multifamily developments.

On a pro bono basis, Daniel has obtained zoning entitlements for a number of community impact projects, including a community garden in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood and a charter school in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. Daniel’s interest in affordable housing and community development led him to pursue a joint degree in law and urban planning at the University of Michigan, during which time he also researched urban policy issues as a Mayoral Fellow for the City of Chicago.
