You apply for a LIHTC apartment through the apartment community itself. Applicants may apply anywhere in the country, regardless of where they currently live. If the community does not have any available units, you will likely be placed on a waiting list. Most towns and cities have many LIHTC apartment communities, all of which are operated independently. If one property you contact does not have any available units, keep searching because another property nearby may have available units. Make sure you contact each property in an area to check availability.
Use the search bar at the top of any of Affordable Housing Online’s pages to search for your city, county, or state. Look at the communities shown with the “Low Income Housing Tax Credit” program tag in the gray box, and click the property name to learn more.
