Federally Assisted Affordable Rental Housing

These properties contain an estimated 243,874 rental housing units. (Note: Some of the Federal source data we use does not include total unit count for a property -- most notably the LIHTC database -- so the number of units listed here may be less than the actual.)

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program is the largest assistance program by unit count. The program assists 165,696 in Texas. The charts below lay out how each Federal program impact affordable housing in Texas.
