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

From 1992 to 2012, 11 low income apartment communities containing 709 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Pottawatomie County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
