Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Carroll County

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

From 2011 to 2011, 1 low income apartment communities containing 43 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Carroll County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
