The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program aims to create affordable rental housing for low and very low income families.

From 1993 to 2011, 5 low income apartment communities containing 307 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Colusa County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
