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

From 1992 to 2009, 6 low income apartment communities containing 206 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in McIntosh County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
