About our affordable housing program

Our community is operated under Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code. This special financing program is designed to facilitate the housing needs of moderate and middle-income households. Residency at this community requires that applicants meet certain qualifying standards established by the government. This program is not connected with Section 8; however, we do accept Section 8 participants. 

Residency at this community is limited to those households having moderate incomes, as shown below. In this county, the maximum allowable incomes (by household size) are as shown below.

In addition to standard wages, income includes monies received from all sources such as alimony, child support, pensions, social security, and asset income. All information on income provided by applicants must be verified before occupancy. The certification process must also be completed annually.
