Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Choctaw County

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

From 1993 to 2007, 2 low income apartment communities containing 75 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Choctaw County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
