Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Vermilion County

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

From 1994 to 2005, 5 low income apartment communities containing 369 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Vermilion County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

However, Affordable apartment communities that receive funding through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program may have rental units that are not subject to income and rent limits.

Rent limits for the LIHTC Program are determined so that a household making the maximum income for the expected household size of the unit would only pay 30% of their income for rent.
