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

From 1999 to 2010, 4 low income apartment communities containing 616 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Tom Green County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
