Census Tract Designations

A census tract is a statistical subdivision of counties that may include just a few neighborhoods in a city or, in rural areas, may include several towns. HUD designates Qualified Census Tracts (QCTs) for purposes of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. To qualify, census tract must either: demonstrate a poverty rate of at least 25 percent, or 50 percent or more of its householders must have incomes below 60 percent of the area median household income.
