About Sunny Meadows Apartments

Sunny Meadows is a newly renovated affordable housing community for 200 families in Watsonville. Originally constructed in 1971, Sunny Meadows was acquired by MidPen Housing in 2010 when the original owners, Green Valley Apartments - a nonprofit housing corporation formed by the First United Methodist Church and United Presbyterian Church - were looking to sell and wanted to ensure that the new owner was committed to preserving affordability for existing and future residents. Sunny Meadows underwent an extensive rehabilitation of its residential buildings, community spaces, and open areas. This renovation, of one of the largest apartment complexes in Santa Cruz County, resulted in a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly development.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

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.

Freedom Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Income Limits

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 Freedom but actual income limits may differ for units at Sunny Meadows Apartments.

AMI Band 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person 5 Person 6 Person 7 Person 8 Person
Very Low Income (50%) $42,950 $49,100 $55,250 $61,350 $66,300 $71,200 $76,100 $81,000
Low Income (60%) $51,540 $58,920 $66,300 $73,620 $79,560 $85,440 $91,320 $97,200

Sunny Meadows Apartments 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.

Sunny Meadows Apartments is managed by MidPen Housing.
