Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Sutter County

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

From 2001 to 2001, 1 low income apartment communities containing 79 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Sutter County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
