About Fremont Oak Gardens

Fremont Oak Gardens is a beautiful multi-building complex for adults 55 years or older with amenities for the deaf and hard of hearing.  A series of workshops with deaf community members helped Fremont Oak Gardens’ planners understand the housing features deaf seniors need most.  Site amenities include strobe lights to signify doorbell, phone and fire alarms, and TTY intercoms and elevators with windows to allow signing with the outside in case of a malfunction.  Throughout the complex, the architect emphasized clear lines of sight to enable visual communication.  The two-story complex includes a main community building and multiple residential buildings interconnected by covered walks, creating three intimate courtyards.

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.

Fremont 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 Fremont but actual income limits may differ for units at Fremont Oak Gardens.

AMI Band 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person 5 Person 6 Person 7 Person 8 Person
Very Low Income (50%) $43,400 $49,600 $55,800 $61,950 $66,950 $71,900 $76,850 $81,800
Low Income (60%) $52,080 $59,520 $66,960 $74,340 $80,340 $86,280 $92,220 $98,160

Fremont Oak Gardens 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.

Fremont Oak Gardens is managed by Satellite Affordable Housing Associates.
