Sunset Creek is an affordable housing development for families that was the result of a partnership between the Solano Affordable Housing Foundation and MidPen Housing Corp. The community is situated adjacent to a large park with a duck pond, and is minutes from downtown Fairfield and Solano Mall. Several major bus lines and shopping are within walking distance. The flats and townhouse-style units feature patios or balconies and have central heat and air conditioning. Other amenities include an on-site child care center, two playgrounds, covered parking, a community room and a computer center. Sunset Creek received the Helen Putnam Award of Excellence from the Fannie Mae Foundation; a Gold Nugget Award of Merit from the Pacific Coast Builders Conference; and an Excellence in Design award from the City of Fairfield.
Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in Fairfield but actual income limits may differ for units at Sunset Creek.
|AMI Band||1 Person||2 Person||3 Person||4 Person||5 Person||6 Person||7 Person||8 Person|
|Very Low Income (50%)||$30,000||$34,300||$38,600||$42,850||$46,300||$49,750||$53,150||$56,600|
|Low Income (60%)||$36,000||$41,160||$46,320||$51,420||$55,560||$59,700||$63,780||$67,920|
Sunset Creek was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. In addition to providing apartments for low-income households, this property could include some market rate units. Households earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) qualify for targeted rental units in LIHTC financed housing. This property may also designate units for renters with even lower incomes, from 60% of AMI down to 30% AMI. It is even possible that all units have been set aside for those with extremely low incomes (as low as 15% of AMI). This means that the same size unit can rent for different amounts based on the income of the renter.
Figuring out income and rent limits for affordable housing can be complex especially when more than one federal program is involved. To know for sure if you qualify, you must contact the property directly. The amounts provided here should only be used as a basic guide.
Sunset Creek is managed by MidPen Housing.
