Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Redwood County

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

From 1997 to 2007, 2 low income apartment communities containing 75 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Redwood County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

If your income is less than 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI), you should not expect to pay more than the rent value for a unit in the table below. 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.

Using the table above, the maximum income for a 3 person household at 60% of the AMI in Redwood County is $39,120 a year, or $3,260 a month. To determine the maximum rent in the table below we multiply the monthly maximum income, $3,260 by 30% to get a maximum rent of $978 a month.
