What is a Tax Credit Community

We are really looking forward to welcoming you as our newest neighbor at The Strand and you probably have a question or tow about tax credit properties and the application process.
We have you covered!

What Is a Tax Credit Community?

Tax credit communities provide "workforce housing", which simply means housing for residents whose income is within certain percentage of the area median income. If your income falls between the minimum and maximum income restrictions, you may qualify for an apartment at a tax credit community.

What are the income restrictions?

The income restrictions are based on the number of people in the household and the size of the apartment home.
