Do you qualify for low-income tax credit housing?

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) offers you affordable rents that are lower than similar market rate units in your community. Since it was created in 1986, LIHTC has financed close to 3 million affordable apartments, providing homes to approximately 6.5 million low-income households. It is responsible for almost all affordable housing production in the United States. We accept vouchers from your local housing authority. Student restrictions apply.

ELIGIBILITY: You will need to complete an application. The following factors determine your eligibility:

  • Number of members in your household
  • Income
  • Student status

INCOME LIMITS: Your income level is based on you (and your family’s) projected gross income (including assets) for the next 12 months. HUD determines the qualified income levels based on the median income level for your city or county(AMGI) and the number of people in your household.

When you are applying for a LIHTC apartment, we, as the landlord, will need verification of your income and assets. We will ask you to complete a Tenant Income Certification form.

RENT:  Income restrictions apply. The rent you pay is based on matching your income with the area median gross income (AMGI). The tax credit may also include a utility allowance.
