Low Income Housing Tax Credits in McCurtain County

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

From 2001 to 2011, 5 low income apartment communities containing 244 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in McCurtain County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
