Oregon Affordable Housing Tax Credit (OAHTC)

Grant and Tax Credits / OAHTC 
The 1989 Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Affordable Housing Tax Credit ​(OAHTC) program. Under the OAHTC Program, the Department has the authority to certify tax credits for projects. Through the use of tax credits, lending institutions are able to lower the cost of financing by as much as four percent for housing projects or community rehabilitation programs serving low-income households. The savings generated by the reduced interest rate must be passed directly to the tenant in the form of reduced rents.
