Ohio Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program

  • Ohio Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program

The state of Ohio Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (OLIHTC) is a state supplement to the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) designed to create additional housing units that would not have otherwise been created with other state, federal, or private financing throughout state fiscal years (SFY) 2024 to 2027 (July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2027). Modeled after the federal LIHTC, OLIHTC allows owners of qualifying affordable rental projects to claim tax credits against state taxable liabilities over a 10-year Credit Period. These credits are then exchanged by investors and syndicators for equity to help construct or preserve affordable rental housing throughout the state.
