Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Yamhill County

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

From 1987 to 2011, 11 low income apartment communities containing 464 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Yamhill County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

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.
