Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Nobles County

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

From 1988 to 1997, 4 low income apartment communities containing 148 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Nobles 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.
