Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Pend Oreille County

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

From 1990 to 1990, 2 low income apartment communities containing 30 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Pend Oreille County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

If your income is less than 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI), you should not expect to pay more than the rent value for a unit in the table below. 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.
