Plazas de Merced is a 25-unit property in the Phoenix metro area. The property consists of four scattered sites that contain between five and eight units each. The apartments represent a collaboration between Dignity Health and Mercy Housing to provide long-term rental and supportive services for small, low-income families that include at least one family member who lives with special needs.
Since this property was built or renovated using funding from HUD's current Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program or legacy Section 202 program, residency is usually restricted to households earning 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less with at least one adult member with a disability. Tenants pay rent based on household income. This rent is usually the highest of the following three amounts: either 30% adjusted monthly income, or 10% unadjusted monthly income, or, if receiving welfare assistance, the housing costs portion of this assistance.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in a HUD rental assistance program in Phoenix but actual income limits may differ for units at Plazas De Merced.
