Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Fort Bend County

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

From 1989 to 2006, 9 low income apartment communities containing 1,562 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Fort Bend County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
