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

From 1990 to 2009, 9 low income apartment communities containing 693 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Yuba County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
