Low Income Housing Tax Credits in Kewaunee 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 2009, 5 low income apartment communities containing 100 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Kewaunee County by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

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.

Rent limits for the LIHTC Program are determined so that a household making the maximum income for the expected household size of the unit would only pay 30% of their income for rent.
