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 using funding through HUD's Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program, residency is restricted to persons who earn 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less. Like other rental assistance programs like Section 8, resident's rents are based on their income and the tenant contribution is set at 30% of the tenants income.

Plazas De Merced receives rental subsidies through HUD-Assisted Housing for some or all of its apartments. Some units may be designated as market rate housing.
You can make up to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and be eligible for a HUD-Assisted Housing unit. Market rate units would have no subsidies or income restrictions.
