Rent Subsidies

St Andrews Arms provides rental subsidies to renters. The type of subsidy provided to apartment renters in Los Angeles, CA by this property is Project Based Sec. 8.

This subsidy allows the renter to pay 30% of his or her income for rent while the subsidy pays the difference. To qualify, a renter must earn 50% or less of the Area Median Income.

There is a minimum rent payment of not less than $25 and as much as $50 for all subsidy recipients at this property.
