From 1992 to 2012, 35 low income apartment communities containing 4,318 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Osage 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.
