What is affordable housing?
Affordable housing programs vary but the term typically refers to government-subsidized housing where the resident pays no more than 30 percent of his or her income toward rent. To qualify for a subsidy, an applicant should make no more than 50 to 80 percent of an area's median income. These median income levels are set annually by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. To find out what the income limit is for the community you are interested in, please call the property’s leasing office.
How do I apply for housing?
Just visit the community and complete an application during normal business hours. Applications may be mailed to you by request. Remember though, that applications are processed in the chronological order in which they are received. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
If I qualify and submit a complete application, how long will I wait before I can move in?
Our waiting lists vary in length. Many of our communities are processing applications completed three to four years ago. The wait will also depend on each community’s turnover rate. The key is to submit a completed application sooner rather than later. You are also encouraged to regularly follow up on the status of your application by contacting the site and responding to correspondence received from the site in a timely manner.
