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

From 1987 to 1993, 3 low income apartment communities containing 68 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Atascosa County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
