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

From 1998 to 2007, 2 low income apartment communities containing 62 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Woodford County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
